St Paul – ATV Accident

An ATV rider was killed in an accident in St Paul last weekend.

At around 7:30 p.m., 36-year-old Matthew Hewitt was riding a 2004 Polaris Range on private property along Church Road when the vehicle suddenly overturned. Hewitt was pronounced dead on-site. Emergency teams were immediately dispatched to the area and are still investigating the incident. There is no indication other parties were involved in the crash.

In the absence of obvious causes, investigators will look at more insidious or less apparent possibilities such as vehicle failures/defects. The bottom line: injuries or fatalities caused by any form of negligence should enable victims or their families to explore and pursue legal avenues against liable individuals. Personal injury experts can help us understand this process and can make appropriate suggestions.
