[Ed. note: There are conventions where they reconstruct accidents? Live and learn]
An accident has taken place at an accident reconstruction convention – but not intentionally.
The Press of Atlantic City reports (http://bit.ly/16S5UtW) that a man participating in the annual convention of accident reconstructionists was hurt during a car crash re-enactment when a cable came loose and struck him in the abdomen.
Russell Strickland of Cincinnati was acting as a radio operator for an experiment to crash two cars at medium speeds in a controlled environment when the accident occurred. Strickland was badly bruised but did not break any bones. He is expected to be released from the hospital Thursday.
