Ellie’s Mission page is published to make the public more aware of the dangers of Yamaha Rhinos. Ellie was a young child who died as a result of riding in a Yamaha Rhino. She was riding with a young adult with her seat belt on. As the driver was going at a normal speed on a flat filed, the Yamaha Rhino tipped over crushing Ellie. Although she was rushed to the hospital, Ellie died as a result of the tragedy.
According toEllie’s Mission page, Rhino drivers and Rhino riders have suffered serious injuries and in some instances, death, when their Yamaha Rhinos rolled over. These incidents have occurred all over the country.
Here is a list of Yamaha Rhino concerns:
- Too narrow of a wheel base
- Foot well not deep enough
- No padding on roll bar
- Doors too short
- Too high of center gravity
The Yamaha Rhino has been reported to roll over without warning at slow speeds.
