Off-road racing proves fatal

It has been all over the news. Eight spectators to off-road racing were killed in a remote San Bernardino County desert near Victorville last Saturday. The race had just started when a modified Ford Ranger lost control and plowed into a crowd standing close by.

According to the California Highway Patrol, rules say that spectators must stand at least 100 feet back from the road, but evidence shows that this rule was not enforced for this race. It was reported that tens of thousands of people lined the course for the race. Barriers keeping people away from the fast-moving vehicles did not seem to be present. Federal investigators said it was too early to determine if gross acts of negligence took place and if criminal charges would be filed.

If you were injured at this race or worse, knew someone who was killed, I would suggest you contact an experienced Personal Injury Attorney who can advise you what to do next.
