    A mother of 4 should be more careful. Speeding around in a 4 wheeler is risk free.

    That’s disgusting a mother of 4 passes away and her family is devastated and someone comes in and attacks her for what she did or didn’t do. It’s amazing how ignorant people can be. sympathy to the family and the children who’s life have been so dramatically altered

      Oh please, dotboy. YOUR charade of compassion is so fake.
      Outlaw ATVs and this couldn’t have happened. At least some common sense ATV laws.
