For the second weekend in a row, a Yamaha Rhino accident has resulted in the death of a young boy. Last week we wrote about the death of an 8 year old from Texas who was ejected from the passenger seat of a Rhino side by side when it rolled over. This past weekend, another Yamaha Rhino death occurred in Wisconsin, this time involving a 3 year old boy.

Local news reports indicate that the toddler was killed when a Yamaha Rhino operated by his father rolled over around 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning. Once again, the boy was pinned under the weight of the Yamaha Rhino when it tipped over.

While there are not a lot of details about exactly how the incident occurred, the Yamaha Rhino ATV has been found to rollover even when it is operated at slow speeds on flat surfaces. Unfortunately, since Yamaha still has not taken any steps to address the stability problems, these tragedies will likely not be the last ones associated with the Yamaha Rhino.

    Whatever happened to people being responsible for themselves and their children. I’ve owned a Rhino for over 1 year in hilly West Virginia.
    Try reading the manual, wearing a helmet, wearing the seatbelt, and riding within your skill limits!
    Everybody is looking for an easy way out via a lawsuit.
