I just can't imagine it happening so fast that you can't get out. Hope everyone is ok. I would like to hear what happened.

re: FIRE

Just some FYI. The kid was in the back n is doing ok some bad burns but will make a full recovery. Don't know how it caught fire but it was not the fuel tank side. Why it took so long to get out was in part the flames and 2nd the harness wouldn't release. Seat belt type. Curious to know how the other rzr went up.

re: FIRE

Hope the young duner recovers fully.

There's been too many broken belts in the sand to explain away driver error on break in times. I'm wagering Polaris is working on the issue to remedy this problem, as it absolutely has become one.

re: FIRE

lets pray he is ok being burned is the most excruciating pain you can go through
from them scrubbing you down with a wire brush and then the infection your body has to fight off and then all the skin graphs and surgeries
yes im a survivor of being burned 75% of my body got burned in a car accident
some places to the bone im lucky/blessed to still be here i thank the good Lord everyday i pray for this young boy

Thank you Frank for saying this!!!!

I've been saying this over & over, yet very few have listened. I hope with your respect in the UTV industry and with all the followers you have on this site, more will listen to you and take your advise.

I think all the company's that sell fuel can mounts will stop ASAP!! We would be asking them to help protect this sport and quit selling a product that could ultimately hurt or kill.

This Thanksgiving seemed to be the weekend for fires & people being burned. I know of one who lost their life due to a buggy fire this week.
