    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two Massachusetts men have died in a fiery crash at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, Las Vegas police said Sunday.

    Las Vegas Metro Police said the victims were a 34-year-old man from Chicopee and a 33-year-old man from Springfield, but their names haven’t been released yet.

    Police said they were called shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday about an injury crash involving a three-wheeled vehicle.

    Investigators believe the driver was speeding through a curve when he struck small boulders along the road of the scenic loop.

    The vehicle then rolled off the road into a gully and caught fire.

    Police said the driver and passenger were trapped inside the three-wheeled vehicle and died.

    They rent those stupid things out to tourists here in Las Vegas . They aren't particularly fast, but I guess they are still dangerous - apparently .

    Remember when the Feds banned 3 wheeler ATV's because of roll overs?
    Move the one wheel to the rear and Voila', still a 3 wheeler but legal.

    I loved those things when I was a kid!! Unfortunately the idiots ruined the sport for everyone else(stupid #### like putting 5 year old Junior on a tri- z 250 even the the warning labels clearly stated “experienced riders only” on it. The personal injury vultures made a mint off of lawsuits brought on by people who sued the manufacturers for incidents that were caused by their own stupidity(like the aforementioned incident as well as not using safety gear, stunts, dui, etc).
     
    mjd4277 Thanks this.
