Woman Dies in Bexar County ATV Accident
An ATV accident in Bexar County claimed the life of a woman while riding the recreational vehicle with co-workers, police said.
The woman, who was killed in the ATV rollover accident, was identified as 24-year-old Angela Guerrola.
Following the accident in Bexar County, Guerrola was transported the San Antonio Military Medical Center. She later died as a result of the injuries she sustained in the Texas ATV accident. The incident occurred at Alamo Junction Ral Park at around 5 a.m., police reported.
Guerrola endured fatal injuries when the all terrain vehicle rolled on top of her, officials said.
Several ATV accidents have emerged in the news and people across the state wrap up their summer, spending more time partaking in recreational activities. But despite the assumed safety of vehicles and recreational equipment that can easily be found on the market, certain flaws in the design of some recreational vehicles can be deadly. Although the presence of a roll cage can help prevent ATV and four wheelers from crushing riders and passengers should the vehicles roll. But while data and information ties the presence of roll cages to improved safety, many manufacturers and companies continue producing the vehicles without the improved safety equipment, leaving victims vulnerable to serious head, neck and back injuries.
Some of the other causes of ATV injuries include:
- Operating four wheelers and ATV’s at unsafe speeds
- Young children or inexperienced drivers operating the vehicles
- Improper use of ATV’s, such as riding with too many people
- Defective ATV design
- Operating the vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol
