Tell the whole story. Was Marcos Saucedo legal or illegal ?

those things are fun but very dangerous. sad

What does it matter whether he was legal or not? He died!

They are fun but, you have to be very careful operating them. I wonder if the victim was wearing a helmet. There has been a lot of death and severe injuries connected to these machines.

True, ATVs are dangerous . . . so is life, especially in So Cal.

Caliphobe...you have major issue's. Someone's child is dead. Have some respect.

My condolences to the family.

R.I.P. Marcos. You will be missed. This was a great kid my son was on the same soccer team as Marcos. My condolences to his family.

I may not have known him long but he made a great impression on me. He was sweet and caring. So many people came to give him his last good bys. But I feel he left this world and lives on in a better world with God. He will never truly be gone because he will live forever in all our hearts and through memories he will live forever.
