Vehicle runs over beach goer
July 28, 2008 15:35
A Russian student who is working in the United States to earn money was run over by a Wildwood Beach Patrol vehicle while sunbathing at Wildwood Beach.
The woman sustained severe abrasions and bruising, had tire tracks on her arms and hip, and was unable to work for a week. The woman was reluctant to talk about the incident because she's in a foreign country and comes from a police state where nothing is ever blamed on the government.
Wildwood Beach personnel would not speak about the incident which is considered an accident because the woman's position on the beach was in the driver's blind spot. The driver was idling forward when surrounding sunbathers yelled for him to stop. He got out of the vehicle and saw the woman under it on her stomach. She had been sleeping and didn't notice the vehicle coming toward her until it was too late.

Yamaha Rhino Recall
April 17, 2008 11:48
It is true that the Yamaha Rhino is known for its excessive rollover risk. But, it is commendable that Yamaha opted to voluntarily pull the Rhino off the market (partially) in the form of a recall. While this is commendable it does not free Yamaha of liability. After all, they released a very dangerous product onto the market. Therefore, Yamaha will surely find itself on the receiving end off a number of lawsuits because it should have shown proper due diligence and realized that the Rhino possessed a severe rollover risk. As such, the pending lawsuits will surely force Yamaha's hand to be more careful in the future.
