While some ATV accidents are due to negligent operation, often times ATV accidents occur when the all-terrain vehicle rolls over, especially when the driver is too young to be riding. Some ATV models, including the Yamaha Rhino, are prone to rolling over, due to their narrow wheelbase and high center of gravity. The Arctic Cat ATV was also recently recalled after the speed controller was found to be defective, causing the rider to lose control of the ATV.
