Racing is a dangerous sport. We all know not to race on public roads if we want to stay safe. But even those who are on a track are under great danger. A local woman was killed in a professional racing accident. The strange thing was, she wasn’t in a vehicle, as the AJC reports.
The accident happened at Road Atlanta during a motorcycle race. A corner judge was observing what was happening. Corner judges are there to assist racers if an accident happens and to let them know about track conditions. They help make racing conditions safe.
Despite 15 years of experience, a freak accident caused a motorcycle to hit the judge. The judge was killed in the impact. The cause of the crash is unknown, but given the amount of witnesses and cameras at race track, we should hear an answer soon.
It’s an unfortunate incident. Thankfully, racers carry a lot of insurance and should be able to help this woman’s family with final expenses as well as any other damages. But other people aren’t so lucky, especially pedestrians who are injured in a street race.
