It is not that I am dead set against ATVs and ORVs; I'm dead set against death and destruction.
I truly hope the newly formed SORVA organization in Newberry area can make a BIG impact on education for riders as well as the business owners that benefit from the ATV industry.
I hope to have more info about the SORVA organization that I can share with you at a later time.

ARDEN, Ark.—A 13-year-old Texarkana, Texas, girl was seriously hurt Friday when the four-wheel ATV she was operating collided with a car on Arkansas Highway 32 West, said Little River County Deputy Brad Vaughn.
The girl’s head crashed through the windshield of a car that hit the ATV, he said.
The crash was reported at 4:18 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Arkansas Highway 32 West and Little River County Road 152 west of Arden.
The girl, Britney Hollowell, was operating a Honda Recon and attempting to turn into the driveway of her grandfather’s house on the south side of the highway.
As she was turning at the home of Dwight Hollowell, the left rear of the ATV was hit by a Honda Civic traveling eastbound and driven by Corey Robertson, 19, of Foreman, Ark., said Vaughn.
The car skidded for about 180 feet before hitting the ATV. Witness statements said Robertson sounded the car’s horn and tried to avoid the collision, but it hit the left rear of the ATV.
Witnesses said the impact knocked Hollowell into the air and her head went through the windshield of the car. She was transported by LifeNet ambulance to CHRISTUS St. Michael Health Care Center in Texarkana.
Vaughn said the girl had a severe cut to her neck along with other cuts and bruises. He said her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
No citations have been issued and the accident remains under investigation.
