There's six dead and 18 injured in Selmer, Tennessee after the Aussie drag racer Troy Warren went out of control while doing a burnout for the fans at a charity event at a closed street event without guard rails. Warren then careened out of control into the crowd where a Tennessee Highway Patrol spokesman says the fatalities include two 15-year-old girls and a 17-year-old girl. The accident injured 18 others, including a five-year-old boy. The accident occurred at a "Cars for Kids" charity event, an organization set up by a father after a biking accident ten years ago involving his son. The irony: his son survived.
