As school winds down, and the fun of summer approaches, The Leon Law Firm (www.theleonlawfirm.com) reminds you to remember safety first. The following was reported Sunday, May 20th:
Two children were airlifted to the hospital after a four-wheeler crash near Baytown, KTRK-Channel 13 reports on Sunday.
The 7-year-old and 13-year-old were injured at about 5:45 p.m. at David G. Burnet Park. Their injuries are reportedly minor.
While these children were lucky not to be seriously harmed, many others have not been so.
Also remember that Age also plays a major role in ATV use, safety and laws. Manufacturers build different size ATVs for use by different age groups, and a lack of adherence to a vehicle size to age ratio can lead to very serious injury. Riders under the age of 16 account for more than one-third of ATV accidents and injuries, and are often the most avoidable.
Have Fun BUT Stay safe!
