Yamaha Recalls Rhino Models After 46 Deaths

The AP reports that "Yamaha Motor Corp. USA recalled about 120,000 off-highway recreational vehicles for repairs Tuesday, after two models were involved in 46 deaths." The company has recalled "all Rhino 450 and 660 model vehicles...for repairs designed to prevent accidents that resulted in 46 deaths and hundreds of injuries." Most of the "incidents were rollovers", many of which involved "turns on level ground at relatively slow speeds."
