Melbourne woman Chelsea Callaghan died at the weekend having suffered severe head injuries while on a quad bike adventure tour less than two weeks ago.

Ms Callaghan, 38, who had signed up for a tour with “quad-bike specialist” Riverland Adventures, sustained her injuries at Klondyke Rd, in Onewhero, just outside Auckland, on October 11, according to a report.

“Her death is the fifth quad bike-related death this year and follows that of 10-year-old Sam White on October 10,” the report said.

According to data from Ministry of Innovation & Employment, formerly the Department of Labour, 850 people are injured riding quad bikes on farms every year and five die.
