I myself have accidentally run a stop sign, I think everybody has, it's human nature to make mistakes, unfortunately sometimes fatal.
Thanks for the info Cat. So sorry and def prayers up! I'll be at Cougar Buttes this weekend and know exactly where this is. What a tragic incident.Hi all, I'm sad to say that this happened to our family and friends. We are all of course completely heartbroken and devastated. Please send prayers for the family and all involved. There is a Go fund me link below (not sure if allowed) but prayers are more important. The details are as such. At apx 6:30pm last Sat night they were at camp doing campfire stuff smores etc. and wanted to go starMy buddies 16yr old driver, my nephew 11yrs old, passenger, both are in one Cat. The father of the 11yr old following behind a few 100 ft in another Cat solo. They were all wearing helmets and 4 point harness etc. The father even buckled his own child in when they left the Rock after star gazing and taking some pics. They were headed back to the ranch on a dirt road apx 2 miles away with them also being tracked via GPS at camp. The 16yr old's Cat had a 40" and 12" light bar on and headlights on, a whip and were driving at what would seem like normal speeds. They made a terrible mistake and didn't heed rules of one of the intersections. They collided T-bone passenger side with a black car with a single occupant traveling at a cross intersection at normal speed. The 16 yr old had superficial injuries such as bruises from the harness, neck strap from helmet and a few cuts on his shins from dashboard. The father was following close behind andgazing. So 3 of them went to Giant rock for a better view. of course not involved in the collision.The father started CPR immediately and handed him over to medical when they arrived.The Coroner, believe that the 11yr old boy died instant from whiplash due to head and added weight of helmet and most likely not prepared to brace to collide with a car. They worked on him for hours and did everything they could. The scene of the crash made no sense as they weren't traveling at high speed, the damage to both vehicles etc was not that bad. The circumstances of a 1500 lb SXS hitting a 3k lb car caused the SXS to come to an instant stop causing the overwhelming undue force on the boy. The Woman driver of the car sustained minor injuries. We send prayers and wish for a speedy recovery to the driver of the car involved and praise the teams of medical for all they did. Its just so tragic.
Medical and CHP were there very fast as well.
