That came as welcome news to Kelly Jo Evans, a trauma nurse clinician at Charleston Area Medical Center, which in 2005 treated 181 people injured in ATV crashes, 70 percent of whom weren't wearing helmets.

‘‘It's a fantastic idea," said Evans, who had been concerned about earlier versions of the legislation which would have only banned ATV riders under 18 from traveling on paved roads.
‘‘It's not just the under-18 age group we're seeing here," she said. ‘‘It's everybody."
Fifty-four people were killed in ATV-related accidents in 2006.


ATVWV.com Club Forums: Free Summer safety Course

Kelly Jo Evans, a trauma nurse clinician with CAMC, suggested an ATV safety course last fall after a rash of deaths in the state over the past three years.

West Virginia led the nation with 40 fatalities in 2005 and is well ahead of that pace with 24 deaths so far this year.
Evans has lectured to students about the dangers of ATVs while visiting area elementary schools, but believes a hands-on course will be more beneficial.The American College of Surgeons suggests local hospitals generate prevention and outreach programs that will have an impact in their area.
"Since we continue to see the death rate climb, I decided this really would be for our community," Evans said."I thought if I can't teach them (at school), maybe we can if we do an outdoor course."
Finding instructors within the medical field wasn't hard.Last year, Evans spoke to Doug Douglas, Healthnet's program manager, who told her, "I know four guys who love to ride."
...
Evans believes people who treat injured ATV riders are better equipped to convey the dangers of four-wheelers.She described Bess as a "walking show-and-tell" who can describe numerous injuries he received while riding when he was younger.
"The Healthnet guys are picking these riders up all the time," Evans said.
...
Evans suggested one of the reasons why the cla$$es have been relatively empty is because the riders must bring an ATV designed for their size.That shouldn't be an excuse for riders to not sign up, she said.
"If I get a lot of people calling and telling me they don't have the right size ATV, then I have no problem approaching the dealers and asking them to loan us vehicles for the weekend," Evans said."I think it has a lot to do with parental involvement."
Evans is hoping the course will reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries in the region.
"We've got so many kids already this summer getting hit by the cars," she said."They're in places they should be and doing stuff they shouldn't."
Riders can register for this Saturday's cla$$ as late as Friday afternoon by calling 388-7861 or 388-7859.
Evans can provide directions to the West Virginia Off-Road Park, which is located about eight miles south of Southridge Shopping Center along Corridor G.

The program is funded through a CAMC Foundation grant, and is coordinated by Kelly Jo Evans, a trauma nurse clinician.She said part of what makes CAMC a designated trauma center is having an active, preventative outreach program based on the needs of the local community.

"We identified [ATV safety] as what we felt like was a great need as a statewide issue," Evans said.
