LEXINGTON, Ky. — It’s something we hear about too often – an injury due to an ATV accident. The UK HealthCare Trauma Program at the University of Kentucky is trying to do something about it.
UK HealthCare has developed a traveling ATV safety display to take to statewide events in areas where ATV accidents are high. The booth includes four stations where kids and adults can learn about ATV safety. Participation in these safety messages earns the visitor a chance to win prizes.
