That's right, the Gumball 3000 has now claimed a second civilian life.

The international rally Gumball 3000 claimed the second victim today - Margarita Chepunjoska, the wife of Vladimir, who died two days ago, has passed away today in the Skopje Clinic Center.

Margarita was severely injured in the accident that took place on Wednesday, when a participant of the rally crashed his Porsche into the car driven by her husband.


With "heart attack" already taken, e're waiting to hear what the Gumball 3000 leadership team's going to cite as the cause of death for Mrs. Chepunjoska in their next press release — massive hangnail? [Hat tip to Oliver!]

@yagobal: We all use the tools at our disposal to get our message across. I don't write for Time magazine or for Newsweek — or even MSN or other news sites. I don't have the capability of doing a 2000 word piece on a subject. What I do have is my sarcasm and my ability to post on a blog. A blog's a platform that's best suited to deal with long stories in an multi-post arc across time, not in a multi-thousand-word story investigated over a number of weeks, days or even hours.

Yes, it may seem like a bunch of stories spread out to sensationalize, but the people reading us who understand the platform more than likely see it as one story — being taken in and responded on as we digest it. You want the long-ass stories, you should probably go somewhere else.
