Case 1. On July 14, 2002, a boy aged 12 years was riding a registered motorbike
on the Rockingham Trail (Rockingham County), when he struck a trail gate at
2:25 p.m. The boy was familiar with the trail, had been riding for several
hours, was wearing protective equipment (helmet, chest protector, and riding
boots), and was accompanied by adults, but he had not taken a safety course.
He looked back just before hitting the gate. His death was immediate and caused
by a cervical spine injury.
