Albany, MO woman killed in RZR Accident

On June 7, 2024, a single vehicle accident in Morgan County resulted in the death of passenger Shawna Dye and serious injuries to the driver, Jacob Dye.  Both of them are from Albany, Missouri.  The Polaris RZR they were riding in attempted to climb a steep hill and lost traction.  No safety devices were used and both occupants were ejected from the vehicle.  Jacob Dye was transported to Lake Regional Hospital by ambulance.


Offroad vehicles, such as the Polaris RZR, are often involved in mid-Missouri crashes that cause serious injury. Often times, these vehicles do not carry liability insurance. One of the avenues of potential recovery for the injured is a products liability claims against the manufacturer. AW Smith Law has successfully handled numerous product liability claims against manufacturers of offroad recreational vehicles. Often times, drivers and occupants are unaware of the dangers associated with the use of the recreational vehicles, which can support a failure to warn product liability claim. AW Smith Law has accumulated specialized information from past cases that can be extremely useful in bringing other product liability claims.
