One minor seriously injured after being hit by an ATV


The crash occurred at around 7:05 PM on July 5th, 2024, on 817 SE 425th RD in Knob Noster Missouri. A 15-year-old juvenile female was operating a 1984 Suzuki 4 Wheel ATV, westbound on the roadway. A 17-year-old juvenile female ran into the roadway in the path of the ATV. The driver of the ATV attempted to swerve to avoid collision but struck the pedestrian in the roadway. The pedestrian sustained serious injuries and was transported by JCAS to Research Meical Center in Kansas City Missouri. There was no damage to the ATV.

Offroad vehicles like ATVs can cause serious injuries on Missouri roadways and often the drivers of the vehicles are not aware of how dangerous they can be. People are not required to carry liability insurance for these vehicles, and they are often operated by children and teens. This can make recovering from damage caused by them substantially more difficult. Because of this it’s important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help bring you justice.
