A Texas family has filed a wrongful death claim against Yamaha, followoing the death of their 9 year old son. J.T. Crow was killed on June 22 when the Yamaha Rhino he was riding in rolled over during a low-speed turn, pinning him under the vehicle and causing severe head trauma. J.T.’s mother, Heidi, says she’s filing the claim against Yamaha to force changes to the design of the top-heavy vehicle which, she says, is too prone to rollovers. She says “I can’t let this happen to another child.”
