Straaaaaange cases: Strip club pays millions over monster truck death
It’s Friday and time for another edition of Straaaaange cases:
In today’s news, a Dallas jury has awarded $10.5 million to the family of a woman who was fatally run over by a monster truck in a strip club parking lot. Eric Crutchfield ran over Kasey McKenzie, 23, in March 2011 as he was leaving the Spearmint Rhino.
He was drunk.
I was thinking that it was some sort of out-of-control monster truck contest, but looks like Eric just didn’t see or feel Kasey in the parking lot. Lesson learned: check behind your vehicle and look in all your mirrors before backing up. AND, as my mom always told me, if you back up slowly there is less chance of killing somebody. That’s the key to safe back-ups. She honestly told me that. And so far, that advice has worked for me!
