All-terrain vehicles (ATVs)—also known as quad bikes, three- and four-wheelers, or quadricycles—are designed to traverse various types of terrain, as suggested by their name. ATV drivers are not required to wear helmets, but they are recommended as a safety precaution.

ATV Crash Results in Injuries

A 35-year-old man suffered serious head trauma and other injuries after an ATV crash in Vincennes, Indiana. The Brownsville, Texas resident was apparently traveling near 60 mph when he lost control of a Suzuki ATV and smashed into a pole on June 11, 2015. No one else was injured in the accident.

Emergency responders came to the scene, near the soccer fields on South 6th Street, and stabilized the man before taking him to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes. A helicopter later took him to St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville, Indiana for further treatment.

The man was reportedly not wearing a helmet or other protective gear.
