Tony Kalka explains how his client was run over by an ATV / 4-Wheeler.

A popular activity while in the outdoors or on large property is to ride an all terrain vehicle (ATV). On August 6, a man riding with a group was killed after he had an accident on his ATV. Riding on the Valhalla Trail in Bayfield county, Wisconsin, the rider had passed away by the time emergency services had arrived on the scene. The man was part of group staying in the area and they were riding together in a group.

Also, alcohol was also believed to be a contributing factor. Too many times people somehow rationalize how driving a vehicle at excessive speeds during or after drinking is an acceptable and relatively safe thing to do. Plenty of ATV accidents happen without the help of the impairing effects of alcohol. Although the man passed away, riding in a group was one precaution taken. If the accident had not been instantly fatal, traveling in a group would have been beneficial because the others could have helped him and reached emergency services like they did.
