    hope he recovers, It is a dangereous activity.

    The difference between follies and an extreme sport. Fools don’t take proper precautions..

    Lesson to all never do anything alone in remote area. Even walking, a simple trip or animal bite can become fatal.

    @ REST…..prayers continue to be lifted for him, family, and friends. I pray that the Lord surrounds all of you with his protective angels. Father, I ask that you guide the hands and knowledge of all doctors, medical staff, and nurses involved in this young man’s care. I pray that you lay your healing hands upon him and comfort his friends and family…..Amen!

    Please keep us posted as you can, God bless you all!

    It doesn’t matter if you are on an atv, motorcycle, horse, skateboard, etc. Accidents happen. There needs to be more places for people to enjoy the sport of their choice. Proper protective gear is a must. When riding in undeveloped or new territory, a slow ride-thru to look for unforseen obstacles is a good idea. This boy and his family are in my prayers. Lets pray for a full recovery.

    He’s still in critical condition. Hoping he improves but doctors won’t know for a few days.

    I used to ride there just after it was cleared for the development. Surprisingly, there just aren’t that many places to ride off-road that aren’t controlled by the hunt clubs.

    First I’d like to say my thoughts and prayers are with this young man and his family. I pray he makes a complete recovery!

    No known facts have been released regarding the accident so let’s not be so quick to JUDGE. Accidents happen all the time regardless of what you are driving, doing or wearing. It’s a part of life we all live!

    Any updates? Hows he doing?

    Hope hes ok. These ATV drivers fly around like they are made of rubber covered concrete. No helmets, no elbow pads, apparently you dont even need a licence to drive one, nothing. I hate the silly things. May God be with him and his family.

    Praying God touches this young man where and how he needs That Touch.

    I live in the neighborhood next to where this happened. My thoughts and prayers go out to this young man and his family. I hope he will make a full recovery. With that said, this is a perfect example of why you should NOT be riding in a undeveloped subdivision with no supervision full of holes and rocks that make crashing easy, and SHOULD be riding on a track specifically made for dirt bike riding.
