Two fans die at Talladega Superspeedway

from Seattle Post Intelligencer

 

Talladega, AL (Sports Network) - Keith Stell (39) of Birmingham, AL and Ronny Wright (42) of Remlap, AL died on Monday as they were setting up their campsite for this weekend's NASCAR racing at the Talladega Superspeedway.

 

The two men were killed instantly after a flagpole they were erecting came in contact with power lines.

 

County Coroner Jerry Castleberry said "a witness saw a gust of wind cause the flagpole to fall. The men were still holding onto the pole when it touched the power lines and they didn't have a chance."

The sad thing is this happens all the time. There is always one person that dies at TMS when NASCAR is there. I always just feel really bad for the wives, they were watching when it happened.
