hey thought so, maybe he was in the wrong for being on the road however he did not deserve to die just because he was in the wrong, it was not a main road and he lived at the end of the street where it happened, he had friends at the muffler shop and the scrap yard where this happened, he was also a former employee of the scrap yard, he was a very well liked individual and him and his family are well known and liked by majority of the people who witnessed this fatal accident as well as the young man driving the truck that pulled out.

Everyone did all they could for him and the employees of the scarp yard closed up immediately and tended to him and contacting his family. It was a TRAGIC accident and very sad day for all involved. RIP Kevin

I don't think u should be sayin that it serves him right. Kevin was a very loved person. He didn't deserve to die. He was very kind and respectful. He will never be forgoten and will always be in our hearts. To those who knew him i'm truely sorry that we lost such a great guy. And i'm prayin for his dad. He didn't take it to well yesterday. He said to me that he wants to trade places. With that bein said, plz don't say anything bad cause this family is havin a hard time without the extra negativity from u rude people. This is a tragic death of very loved person and don't any stupid crap bein said. Thanks!

So sorry for this family's loss. Kevin's father is hurting very badly. He has lost a child and that is not how it should be. I will pray to the Lord that he may lay his hands on this grieving family and be with them throughout this tragic time in their lives. The world will mourn the loss of this bright young man, but Heaven shall rejoice!!!

You must be a sorry piece of crap to say that it served him right. He lived about half a mile from the accident scene. Maybe he rode on the side of the road until he arrived at his friend's business. This may explain why the truck driver didn't realize that he had hit a four wheeler at first. Take your high opinion of yourself and your know it all attitude and get a life. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

This was not an "accident." That word implies that nothing could have been done to prevent it. If he hadn't been on the road, he wouldn't have been hit!

The other poster is rude, but correct. When are people going to learn to use ATVs properly?

If it wasn't an accident are you saying the truck driver purposely clipped the ATV? If he were riding off the side of the road, how can you say that he was on the road. The truck clipped the rear quarter of the ATV. It wouldn seem to me that that may explain why the truck driver didn't see Kevin on the ATV.

The shoulder of the road is considered part of the road. You can't play with fire and them blame the fire when you get burned.

I'm saying it could have been prevented. Unless the truck completly left the roadway and went off into a field/yard/whatever and hit the ATV, then the ATV was at fault.

I feel bad for the truck driver. He has to live with it. Even though it wasn't his fault, there's probably some guilty feelings.

The shoulder of the road is a legal area to ride an ATV. Check with law and see!

Ok this is very tragic for this poor man and his family. and eventhough he is part to blame because he was riding on the road,anyone who has ever ridden a four wheeler occasionally, at some point and time most likely has drove on the road on a four wheeler.Be it just joy riding or riding from one place to another,long distance or short.This will forever be an ongoing problem(4 wheelers on roads) because you just cant keep people that own anything with wheels and a motor to stay completely off the road.I know I have ridden a 4 wheeler on the road and you most likely have too.You must be extra cautious in every situation and use your own judgement.

If people would pay more attention to what is going on around them while driving then lots of wrecks would not occur! This man did not deserve to die! Anyone that's says that is an idiot!
