Four people have died and two others have been injured in ATV accidents in the past year in Central Texas, and local officials are warning that proper safety gear and training are essential for anyone who operates the popular off-road vehicles.
The McLennan County Sheriff’s Office has just purchased two ATVs and a side-by-side off road vehicle to use in searches for suspects in rough terrain.
Two deputies were sent for four days of training in how to properly operate them, McLennan County Sheriff Parnell McNamara said.
