UPDATE – A family member with knowledge of the incident commented on the VVNG.com article and said Isaiah was on a dirt bike next to his campsite when he was hit by an adult driving a CanAm.
“The other driver tried to avoid hitting him and they both swerved to the right causing them to hit head-on. My nephew was hit so hard he was thrown off the bike into the air. His helmet flew off before he hit the ground. This has nothing to do with the parents being at fault or irresponsible. Have some respect and compassion and just be thankful it wasn’t anyone in your family,” stated the commenter.
