    Event promoter at a monster truck rally dies.

    "Ironically, Eisenhart talked about the safety of his shows, put on by Monster Truck Nationals, in an interview with a Madison television station before the weekend event.

    "This is our 16th year," Eisenhart told CNN affiliate WKOW. "I wish I had a big piece of wood to knock on right now, but we have not had an incident besides a gal slipping in the aisleway at another location."



    Yikes.

    Accidental death or natural causes?

    Crushed by a truck.

    More Ironic-

    The truck was Grave Digger.


    Well it wasn't, but it would have been more ironic.

    Yea it was pretty crazy how he was totally oblivious to this massive truck bearing down on him. I've yet to see the whole video though, everyone i've seen so far cuts off right before impact. RIP dude.

    Also RIP to the 6 year old boy who died at a monster truck event in Tacoma last week :(

    404 Irony not found. In a related news, coincidence and irony continue to be separate and distinct from one another.

    The video I watched showed the impact, although all it is, is the truck driving.. him walking infornt of it and then him laying on the ground.

    Suicide? I hate to say it.. but he really did just walk in front of it or at least that is what the video shows.

    He was talking about how safe it was, and then he was killed by being unsafe. Seems ironic to me.

    Oh, and CNN :lol:

    I should have specified that I was referring to the Grave Digger comment.
