At least he went out having fun on a 4-wheeler. Go old man! It reminds me of "grandma flipped her vette." Forget what movie that was in..

Some farmers use them to check fence lines and cattle. They didn't say if this land was his property but accidents happen, just like they do while you are running a haying tractor. I am glad they found him though.

WhattheHess is correct. The elderly man was probably riding on his own property.

They make ATVs which look like small Jeeps and pickups.

Some of those that look like small pickup trucks would qualify as street legal if the governments of the USA and individual states would say so.

Some of them have every necessary thing on them that is street legal except a place to put the State license plate.

My husband has a 4-wheeler in which he checks our property. Sometimes that is the best way to check out certain property do to the layout of the property---a tractor sure would not be appropriate. Anyway, my husband knew this guy and our prayers and sympathy go to the family!

A horse can be just as dangerous.
