US Air Show Death Toll Up by 10

Almost famous.

The pilot of the crashed P-51 plane must have thought of fame before losing control of the aircraft and plummeted into the spectators.

Sadly, he had not heard applause of admiration, but cries of pain on his last breath.

According to reports, a pilot of World War II-era Mustang plane participated in the National Championship Air Races on Friday. While performing at full speed, he lost control of the plane and it crashed down into the crowd.

At least 10 spectators have been killed in the plane crash as of Monday, reports said.

Reports said the P-5 Mustang plunged into the front section of the box seats, causing fatal and serious injuries to at least 65 spectators.

According to reports, seven onlookers died instantly after the crash while three others succumbed to their injuries while being treated at Renown hospital and St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center respectively.

Reports said four out of the 65 victims were still listed in critical condition as of Monday.

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) affirmed its efforts on retrieving memory cards from the crash scene, which could help identify the causes of events. The agency is expected to release its accident report by Friday.

The spectators must have been anticipating for a signature stunt from the veteran pilot. Sadly, the aircraft collapsed and failed to fulfill the crowd’s request. The air show ended with a tragic scene of lives loss and a fatal retirement of a once-admired aviator.

Airplane accident usually occurs because of mechanical failure or pilot error. Defective aircraft parts often go unnoticed until smoke or navigation difficulty triggers. When the pilot has insufficient time or skill to correct the technical problem, crash happens and injuries can be sustained by both the pilot and people on the ground.

Actress Reese Witherspoon Wears Black Eye after LA Car Crash

The Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon was spotted on Wednesday in Santa Monica, wearing a black eye on her lovely face. The formerly flawless celeb ramped on the streets days after her pedestrian accident in Los Angeles.

According to reports, Witherspoon has headed to a friend’s party in Los Angeles showing a black eye and bandaged forehead. The Walk the Line icon was seen unloading gifts from her car’s trunk days after a car hit her in Los Angeles.

Witherspoon was jogging in Los Angeles when an 84-year-old driver struck her. The actress was knocked on the floor and sustained minor face injuries. She was treated at a local hospital and was released the same day. She was recuperating from her injuries at home, reports said.

Reports said the award-winning actress is not pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the elderly driver. Witherspoon’s representative also affirmed that the upcoming filming of This Means War and Mud will not be affected.

Sustaining minor injuries and not pressing any charges against the elderly driver has its consequences. Failure to file the lawsuit on time may nullify any future claims on the accident. In California, the statute of limitation for personal injury claims is up to two years.

If the injured person chooses not to file the accident suit, and the time limit already lapsed; the court will no longer accept a claim on the accident. The victim then forfeits his or her rights to receive compensation for medical expenses, emotional loss, or property loss. If the victim suddenly discovers a complication from the injury, he or she will have a hard time convincing the judges to reconsider the case.

Filing the lawsuit immediately after the accident is important and necessary. It allows the victim to gather key evidence at the accident scene, including witness statements.
The plaintiff’s lawyer will also find it easier to substantiate the case, using fresh testimonies from the witnesses as well as credible accident reconstruction. More over, the victim can gather up-to-date medical records to show proof of the injuries sustained.

Well, the blonde babe may no longer need the payment of the elderly driver as she is capable of financing her own medication; such a lucky 84-year-old motorist then.

However, if the elderly driver can get away with the accident; a lot of citizens may try their luck also in hitting Hollywood celebs on LA roads. Perhaps Witherspoon should think about preventing her accident case to become a precedent of liable-free crashes.

As for her fans, it is still better to assert a legally blonde attitude after a pedestrian accident in Los Angeles.
