Calico was more than a ghost town over the weekend; it was the scene of a fatal off-road accident also. A 42-year old man was pronounced dead late Saturday night when his off-road vehicle crashed and killed him.
California Vehicle Code Section 38505 states, "A helmet must be worn at all times by anyone, regardless of age, who is driving an ATV." It has not been stated if the driver was wearing a helmet at the time he lost control of his vehicle.
The accident is under investigation to determine what caused this accident.
If you or a family member is injured in an off-road accident because of the negligence of another person or if the vehicle had defective parts, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who can investigate your case for you to determine if you are entitled to compensation for damages, injuries and expenses.
