Woman dies when run over by bus at Burning Man,


The woman, whose name and age was not immediately released, may have been riding on the bus before she fell under the wheels and was run over by it, said Sheila Reitz, dispatch supervisor for the Pershing County Sheriff’s Office…

The event each year attracts some 60,000 people who spend the last week in August camping and exercising what organizers call “radical self-expression” on a dry lake bed called the playa in the Black Rock Desert, about 110 miles north of Reno.

Tickets to the event range from $380 to $650.

Pretty expensive to attend. One has to wonder when things like this happen if drugs or alcohol were involved?


How tragic. May she rest in peace and perpetual light shine upon her. May the God of all comfort be with grieving family and friends. May there be a full investigation to hopefully prevent further problems.
