Don Krusemark must have been that rare breed of person that just won't stop giving. The 87-year-old great-grandfather from Dallas, Texas served in the Navy during World War II and was such a frequent blood and platelet donor at Carter BloodCare that he was awarded with a ride along at the Texas Motor Speedway courtesy of the Texas Driving Experience. A day later, Kruseman passed away as a result of a life-ending injury he sustained at the track.
Tragedy struck Volkswagen when a 42-year-old Brazilian test driver was reportedly killed at the automaker's Ehra-Lessien test track near Wolfsburg, Germany. Manufacturing reports that the driver lost control of the vehicle after a sudden storm dumped rain on the track. The test car came to rest just shy of a crash barrier, but a second car, piloted by an unidentified 27-year-old driver, also spun out and rammed into the first car. The second driver reportedly sustained serious injuries.
