Man Killed By Whirling Car Wash Brushes

We've always thought of the car wash as a happy and safe place, perhaps because of the influence of the excellent 1976 film Car Wash. However, it turns out that we were very, very wrong; Ricardo Martinez, an 18-year-old employee of the Goo Goo Express Car Wash in Wyoming, Michigan, was dragged into one of the machines and killed in a tragic incident last Friday.
