You Can't JUST Look Through the View Finder.

WABI TV5 News Item from their website:

"Racecar Lands on Photographer

Opening day at Unity Raceway was halted abruptly Sunday, when a photographer was hit by a racecar and seriously injured. It happened just before six p.m.

One of the race cars went airborne and crashed through a chain link fence.

38-year-old John Crawford of Fairfield was behind that fence, taking photos and video of the race. The car came to rest on top of him. He was taken by helicopter to Eastern Maine Medical Center with massive head and chest injuries. He is in critical condition this morning.

The driver of the race car was taken to Sebasticook Valley Hospital and later released."

Be CAREFUL out there!
