A tragic accident occurred on Monday morning at a street near Chicago, where a contractor working for NASCAR was electrocuted while installing new cables. The contractor, whose name has not been released yet, was pronounced dead at the scene by the paramedics.
According to the Chicago Police Department, the contractor was part of a crew that was hired by NASCAR to upgrade the electrical infrastructure in preparation for an upcoming race. The crew was working on a street near the Chicagoland Speedway, where the race is scheduled to take place next month.
The police said that the contractor was handling a live wire when he came into contact with another wire that was grounded. The resulting electric shock caused him to fall from a ladder and hit his head on the pavement. No other workers were injured in the incident.
NASCAR issued a statement expressing its condolences to the contractor’s family and friends, and said that it is cooperating with the authorities to investigate the cause of the accident. NASCAR also said that it is reviewing its safety protocols and procedures to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
The accident has raised questions about the safety of NASCAR’s electrical work, especially in urban areas where there are many potential hazards. Some critics have argued that NASCAR should not be allowed to perform such work without proper oversight and regulation from the city or state.
However, NASCAR defended its electrical work, saying that it follows strict standards and guidelines, and that it hires only qualified and experienced contractors. NASCAR also said that it has a long history of conducting safe and successful events in Chicago and other cities across the country.
