This form of spectator viewing is popular all over the world and is just plain stupid. It should be banned in this country. The organizers of this race should be sued for failing to protect their spectators ...allowing them to stand so close to the action without barriers is idiotic. On the other hand, for the spectators stupid enough to get that close to the action, if you choose to walk the edge of a cliff then you take the risk of falling off, and if you do then thats your own stupid fault!

Your right 100%. What youv'e said is nothing that people don't know. The next time they will be standing in the same dangerous place. Why? Because "This will never happen to me" mentality.
It only takes 1 person to stand there and the next one will say " if it's ok for him then it must be ok for me...And the croud begins again and forever....

All the people watching didn't think this would happen???OMG,That's the 1st and only thing I would think would happen.I wouldn't be anywhere NEAR THERE.I would maybe be high on a hill far away watching.
Don't these people watch those video shows of disasters and crashes on Tru tv??
Guess this is just natural selection at work.
I do not blame the driver.I blame the stupid people that were "close enough to touch the trucks".
