Man injured in an accident at New Jersey accident show
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - October 9, 2013 (WPVI) -- An accident has taken place at an accident reconstruction convention - but not intentionally.
The Press of Atlantic City reports 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.
Accident reconstructionists were meeting from across the United States and Canada at their annual convention, which this year is being held in Atlantic City.
The accident happened at Bader Field Wednesday afternoon.
