Fans Injured in Daytona NASCAR Wreck May Sue
Three NASCAR fans who were injured when a car hurtled debris and parts into the stands at the end of a race at the Daytona International Speedway last weekend may pursue a lawsuit, their lawyer said. At a news conference Tuesday in Orlando, attorney Matt Morgan said any potential suit would focus on the safety fence at Daytona International Speedway. Driver Kyle Larson’s car impacted the fence on the final lap of the Drive4COPD 300, injuring more than 30 spectators.
While Morgan’s clients remained anonymous for now, he said two were seated directly in front of the crash when they sustained their injuries. The attorney said they hoped to reach a settlement to avoid a suit.
Neither Daytona International Speedway, nor NASCAR, commented on the possibility of the lawsuit. It is unclear if the personal liability waiver printed on all NASCAR event tickets would help deflect any potential litigation.
