The driver of the monster truck tragedy that occurred last weekend in Chihuahua, Mexico, killing nine people and injuring at least 80, was charged with manslaughter on Tuesday after state prosecutors claimed that 51-year-old Velazquez Samaniego did not meet age and health requirements to be driving the Big Show monster truck, the Associated Press reports. It is not immediately clear what those requirements are.
The motorsports community lost a member over the weekend when a track worker was killed just after the checkered flag waved at Formula One's Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. When the race ended, track officials were working to remove the crashed racecar of Formula 1 driver Esteban Gutierrez (shown above) when a mobile crane lifting the car ran over the unidentified 38-year-old volunteer in a freak accident.
