Last month was the 12th Annual West Coast Monster Truck show. Proceeds are donated to breast cancer research. It was a good weekend and supported an excellent cause. Even though most had a good time, not everyone attending a monster truck show can say the same.
Not long ago a 6-year old boy was killed and a man was severely injured at a monster truck show in Tacoma, Washington. This happened when one of the trucks, driving around in circles, had pieces of metal fly off it, over the safety barrier, and hit the young boy and man. The metal knocked the man down and hit the boy in the head, causing him to bleed.
Both victims were taken to a local hospital where the boy died later in the night. The organizers of the show said they follow safety guidelines and do not know how this happened. They are investigating the accident.
How sad. Even though most people attending monster truck rallies have a great time, sometimes tragedy strikes. If you or a loved one ever suffer from an accident like this or any type of accident for that matter that is caused by someone else's negligence, remember that a knowledgeable San Bernardino county personal injury attorney can at least help you get compensation for expenses, injuries and damages.
