Serious injury and death have resulted from rollover accidents and other incidents involving All Terrain Vehicles, or ATVs.

In its most recently published report, Oct. 15, 2008, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission released the 2007 Annual Report of All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)-Related Deaths and Injuries, which compiled ATV-related fatality information available to CPSC staff as of Dec. 31, 2007, and ATV-related injury data for emergency-room-treated injuries occurring through Dec. 31, 2007.

According to the report, by the end of 2007 the CPSC had received reports of 8,995 ATV-related deaths between 1982 and 2007. The CPSC reported 542 ATV-related deaths in 2007. The CPSC report states that data is still being collected for 2005 through 2007, so it expects the numbers of reported deaths for that time period to increase as those numbers become available.

The report also reveals that young people under 16 years of age make up about 28 percent of those killed in ATV-related accidents, and children younger than 12 make up 12 percent of the total.

In 2007, the CPSC estimates 150,900 emergency-room treated injuries related to ATV accidents, up from 146,600 in 2006.
