MACCLENNY, FLORIDA- Saturday, December 15, 2012, a woman from North Florida died as a result of a fall from an ATV that was being driven by her husband. The accident occurred, apparently, when the driver was attempting to negotiate a curve on a rural road. This happened in Hamilton County. The young woman’s death apparently occured as a result of a head injury.
Closed head injuries are usually the most devastating injuries that occur following All Terrain Vehicle (“ATV”) accidents or motorcycle accidents. The severity of the injuries usually range depending on whether or not the hurt person was wearing a helmet. It is unclear whether the woman in this case was wearing a helmet.
