NEW RICHMOND, Wis. — Authorities say a track worker at a Wisconsin raceway was killed during a school bus race while trying to move a damaged bus.
The St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office says 62-year-old Edward Nicholson, of River Falls, died after the bus rolled onto him at Cedar Lake Speedway near New Richmond.
Authorities say the bus became undriveable after a crash.
It was the first night of racing at the speedway.
It opened its season after the Wisconsin Supreme Court struck down coronavirus restrictions imposed by Gov. Tony Evers.
