A tragic event occurred this past Saturday afternoon in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A father and his 12-year-old son were riding a snowmobile in their backyard when the boy lost control and hit a tree head-on. The boy later died from severe head trauma.
According to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the boy was driving with the father’s assistance when something went wrong. The father was thrown from the snowmobile and the boy continued driving toward a wooded area where he hit a tree.
The injured boy was transported to Parkview Main Hospital and died several hours later. The DNR stated that neither the boy nor the father was wearing safety equipment or helmets at the time of the accident. Currently Indiana state law does not require snowmobile riders to wear helmets.
50,000 Americans die each year from traumatic brain injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
