Permits Suspended For Promoter Of Fatal Off-Road Race

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management has suspended future event permits for the promoter of last weekend’s off-road race in the California desert where eight spectators were killed by a racing truck.

The federal agency said Thursday the suspension of any MDR Productions permits will remain in effect while an investigation of the accident is under way.

The spectators were killed Saturday night during the California 200 off-road race in the Mojave Desert northeast of Los Angeles.

Ten other spectators were injured.

Video of the accident showed spectators gathered along the edge of the narrow dirt course as trucks sped past. One truck went out of control and overturned in the crowd.
