Cumberland ATV lesson

Cumberland RCMP detachment officer Terry Brown is using his close call last summer to educate people about the importance of ATV safety.

Last July, Brown and his girlfriend were in a serious crash.

When the ATV crashed, it threw his girlfriend from the vehicle and crushed him underneath.

Aimee Maillet was knocked out, and Brown suffered four broken vertebrae and other injuries.

The cause of the accident was a section of bridge that had dropped down, flipping the ATV.
