Driver killed, Two Injured in Off-Road Vehicle Collision

8 comments

Kevin Kramer, 40, of Los Angeles, was killed when the dune buggy he was driving collided with a second off-road vehicle. The crash occured at around 6:30 p.m. on Saturday on a dirt road in the the Jaw Bone Canyon Off Highway Vehicle Area.

Kramer was traveling northbound on a dirt road when his vehicle started to slide as he rounded a corner. His vehicle crossed into the path of a second vehicle driven by Marshall Bennett, 58, of Pasadena, traveling southbound on the same road.

Kramer’s dune buggy overturned resulting in fatal injuries. Bennett suffered major injuries and was airlifted to Antelope Valley Hospital by Mercy Air.

A passenger riding with Bennett was identified as Alan Perkins, 21, of Los Angeles. Perkins suffered moderate injuries and was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital.

All occupants were wearing seatbelts, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The collision remains under investigation.

    the first report was incorrect, yours is incorrect. i thought that if there was a pseudo news report you were suppose to check the facts. i actually happen to have been there. i went to the seen minutes after it occured. Allen was not Bennets passenger…but i guess reporting the truth is no longer important to journalists and reporters.

    Hi Angela,
    What I think you missed is that the author of this blog post is an attorney, possibly interested in pursuing legal action against Kevin’s estate. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    friend, maybe when we get the police report we can get a case against this blogger/lawyer for crappy reporting. what a joke. and i think i will we should find his official website to give bad reviews. i mean if a lawyer cant get the FACTS straight what hope is there that he can handle your case. i mistyped so much…still shaken up, angry, in shock and devastated.

    To Angela and any others who were impacted by this tragic loss we want to let you know that we regret if any information we passed on was inaccurate. The specifics in the above blog were part of the first news release we received and it came directly from the California Highway Patrol.

    For over two years now we have been posting and leading discussions in an effort to inform others that many insurance companies are now writing insurance policies to cover sand rails and most other varieties of off road vehicles yet unfortunately only a small percentage of people are taking advantage of this protection.

    My partners and our families have deep roots in off-road recreation and have experienced serious injuries but never a fatality.

    Our desire was to inform but not to offend. Please forgive us for any mistaken information we passed along.
