Recent ORV explosion raises questions about vehicle's safety
When Eric Olson saw the news a young child had been badly burned in an ORV fire, he immediately suspected a model of the Polaris RZR.
“It struck home because of the work we've been doing,” Olson said.
On Sunday, three people were injured when their ORV exploded, sparking a wildfire in American Fork Canyon. One of the injured, a young child, was taken to University Hospital with second-degree burns on 40 percent of her body.
Olson has done research and fears it's the same machine he recently filed a lawsuit over. Last week, he filed a lawsuit against Polaris.
