heard 2 people died this weekend. 1 over there and another 1 over there, told by BLM standing at my trlr.

I think 1 was in a Rhino type vehicle and the other was in a rail I think he said.

Both from lack of wearing seat belts.

Very sad.

Yep I heard similar stories like Doghouse did. Although I didnt know it was 2 different accidents. I just thought the story changed from person to person and one said it was a rzr and one said it was a rail. Why would anyone drive without their harnesses on? Sad that it could have been prevented. I buckle up even just to drive over to vendor row.

RIP fellow duner. The weird part is he went to school with my wife and she heard about the accident via F/B. She wasnt close to him, but still weird to see a fellow classmate dead.

And just like it was prev. stated, we have seatbelts in the toys for a reason...

Shanerman, the lady you are talking about is my sister Cindy. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!! I really don't know what else to say. I posted on a different site with a little different info than what you talked about. We didn't know that it was a 60 foot drop. Makes my stomach hurt even more. She said she wasn't sure about the seat belt but obviously he didn't have it on. Tragic. Cindy is at Trauma/ICU at UMC Vegas. She had 12 screws put in her back yesterday. The gash you are talking about has 25 stitches and 20 staples. I counted. It's gonna be a long road to recovery. Even worse Jesse is leaving 4 kids aged 7-14. Shanerman, is it possible for me to get your phone number so that I can thank you personally? I'm sure my sister will when she's able. THANKS again for helping them. You obviously prevented this from turning into a no survivor tragedy.
