I'm sure many of you know about the Gumball 3000 and have heard of the crazy driving that goes on. There have been quite a few accidents in the past, although none involving local drivers or fatalities. Until now:
We've been covering the Gumball 3000 up to this point with good cheer, and we'd hoped it would stay that way. Unfortunately, sometimes when you mix high-powered vehicles with the double dose of stupid -- adrenalin and lack of sleep -- bad things can happen. Like what appears to have happened with Nick Morley and Matthew McConville who according to a report from Metro.co.uk
...have been arrested in Macedonia after an alleged hit and run incident which left one man dead and his wife fighting for her life.
The 67-year-old died on his way to hospital and his wife was in a critical condition after a Porsche taking part in the super car race crossed the road at speed and ploughed into their VW Golf...
...The drivers of the Porsche 911 Turbo Techart which Macedonian TV station A1 named as Nick Morley and Matthew McConville, allegedly got out of their crashed car and ran off.
The station said they later climbed into another car, a BMW, and tried to leave the country.
But eye witnesses alerted police and the pair were arrested at the border.
My condolences to the family involved in the crash, this is very sad.
