On Monday morning, 10-year-old Chase Scarbough, of San Bernardino, lost control of his off-road vehicle while riding in the Johnson Valley Off Road Recreation area near Victorville. After being thrown to the ground, he complained of minor pain. The following morning, drinking water caused him to vomit. He was transported to a nearby hospital, where he died from internal injuries he had sustained in the crash. The California Highway Patrol is investigating the accident, explains a California truck accident attorney.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission defines recreational off-road vehicles, or ROVs, as motorized vehicles having four or more low-pressure tires designed for off-road use and intended by the manufacturer primarily for recreational use by one or more persons. From January 2003 to August 2009, the CPSC received reports of 116 fatalities and 152 injuries suffered in accidents involving ROVs. Just last August, eight spectators were killed at the California 200 off-road race in Johnson Valley when a racer lost control of his vehicle and plowed into the crowd.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Chase Scarbough, the San Bernardino boy who died yesterday.
