Tragedic News when least expected

A member of my extended family was the victim/casualty of a motor vehicle and UTV this past week on a rural county road. Both vehicles were proceeding in the same direction when the UTV entered the public road for the purpose of getting over to the opposite side. Once on the roadway the UTV was overtaken by the MV which then attempted to pass the slow moving UTV. The UTV operator never saw the MV approaching and executed a sharp left turn, impacting the MV on the right front fender. The UTV operator did not survive the crash. He was 68 years old and had no health issues and was a veteran UTV operator. Lesson learned: No matter what has been done before, lack of attention can lead to a catastrophe. PLEASE PRACTICE SAFETY!!
