The Chicago Tribune is reporting that a 14 year old suburban Chicago girl is in critical condition after the atv she was operating collided with another driven by her eleven year old brother. While the children were wearing helmets, the girl was injured when the two vehicles collided in suburban Wadsworth.
The child has been hospitalized with a head injury. Her brother escaped major injury with cuts and bruises. All terrain vehicles have been the subject matter of extensive litigation surrounding their safety.
