Demo Derby Injury

During Friday night’s demolition derby at the Wasatch County Fair, Chief Deputy Jared Rigby said two cars collided, causing a concrete barrier to fall onto a worker.  Rigby saying “Both concrete barriers came over and landed on his legs, causing some crushing injuries to both his legs,” Bystanders were quick to respond, jumping into the arena and lifting the concrete off the injured worker. Grant and Linda Horsley were in the front row and saw the incident happen. Horsley said this is a case where community members came together to immediately aid a person in distress. The man underwent surgery and will recover. Photo: Linda Horsley
