MADISON, Wis. (AP)

It's the second fatality at a monster truck event nine days.

The county coroner says 41-year-old George Eisenhart Jr. of Chardon, Ohio, died after the accident last night at the Dane County Coliseum. A witness tells the Wisconsin State Journal that Eisenhart walked out in front of one of the monster trucks just as it was about to pass by.

The death comes just over a week after 6-year-old Sebastian Hizey died at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Wash. He was struck in the head by a Frisbee-sized chunk of metal that tore off a truck doing doughnuts during the Monster Jam show, which is run by a different company.
