Promoter dies after accident at monster truck show

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A promoter for the Motor Sports Monster Truck & Thrill Show has died from injuries after an accident at the Dane County Coliseum, just over a week after a 6-year-old boy was killed in a monster truck event in Tacoma, Wash.

The Dane County Coroner said 41-year-old George Eisenhart Jr. of Chardon, Ohio, died after an accident Saturday night in Madison. A witness told the Wisconsin State Journal that Eisenhart walked in front of one of the monster trucks just as it was about to pass by.

The newspaper said organizers immediately halted the remainder of the show.

On Jan. 16 at the Tacoma Dome, Sebastian Hizey died after he was struck in the head by a chunk of metal that tore off a truck doing doughnuts during the Monster Jam show.
