Second “Monster Truck” Death In A Week

Friends likened “monster truck ” “entertainment” to dog fighting, calling both “football on steroids.”  Why do we Americans have the need for such violent “entertainment”?

Just wondering….

******************

A promoter for the Motor Sports Monster Truck and Thrill Show has died from injuries in an accident at the Dane County Coliseum in the second fatality at a monster truck event in nine days.

The Dane County Coroner says 41-year-old George Eisenhart Jr. of Chardon, Ohio, died after the accident on Saturday night in Madison. A witness tells the Wisconsin State Journal that Eisenhart walked out in front of one of the monster trucks just as it was about to pass by.

The death comes just over a week after 6-year-old Sebastian Hizey died at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash. He was struck in the head by a Frisbee-sized chunk of metal that tore off a truck doing doughnuts during the Monster Jam show, which is run by a different company.
