Witness: "We were 40 mtrs distance from the place of the accident, occur around 10:40 and 10:50 am, the guy was in the left side of the way (if you go inside the car), so he tried to cross the road and the car was running so fast may be 90 - 100 miles and was hit it by the rigth tire, my brother was step up beside me and says, It was a kid and he run to the place of the accident and I just took a photo to the car seconds after the accident and was the #109, the guy was in the ground in the middle of the way, a couple of guys took him to the side of the road because another car was running on the road, and a Gray ford explorer arrives to the place and they pulled the guy to the trunk and then they leave the place, and they stop the car just in front of us, and a couple of curious guys ran to the trunk to see this guy and he was alive, but with his leg ripped off and bleeding we ask him to take him to the check 1 , to advise to the score guys the accident may be them can help to one way or another and that was all about the guy, so I asked the next day...about this guy and one guy confirmed the dead ."
Witness: "My dad was at the Checkers/ COPS pit and called for our Helicopter (and Weatherman relay) with our medic to come and help them but they drove off before the Helicopter got there.

In the know: "There were 3 accidents, the one hit by 109 died, a neighbor of his confirmed it...The video you saw with the guy laying on the sand with his arms open was hit by a TT, dont know his status. The third accident was at Rm 120 something, hit by the class 1 that plowed into a Tacoma from (Baja Pits)Locos Mocos, the guy was flown out and luckily its all bruises and tire burns, he personally confirmed it..."

RM 7, zoo rd guy hit by a TT, injured w/broken bones & concussion. Video showed the body laying in the crowd.
RM 55, guy hit by a 1 car with reports his leg torn off and bled to death in a car. Sounds like inadequate immediate medical care.

From Ensenada Today:

Oscar Ramos of SCORE places "blame". Though,

 he DOES NOT explain why, Wilson Motorsports

 has now killed two Mexicans and not stopped in

 either case!

"Ensenada, BC, June 8, 2014 - Óscar Ramos Jassen, representative of Score International, said that the death of the minor which happened yesterday during the Baja 500 Off Road Race is more the responsibility of his father than Class 1 driver Ronnie Wilson.
After the events happened in the Valle de la Trinidad district, Ramos Jassen denied blame on the California driver, saying that "the boy went to the middle of the race track to record with his cell phone, and the father did not control him."

"Ronnie Wilson is a professional, a serious businessman who is devastated and destroyed, because he could not avoid what happened. If he had tried to miss the boy, we would now be regretting a greater tragedy because he would have hit at least 15 people," he said.

He also regretted this type of situation, which he says are caused by "negligence of some fans."

"We don't know what to do, we had put on awareness campaigns, but now everybody is shocked and when the Baja 1000 comes, the same thing will happen again because the vehicles are more and more faster and there are more people who don't consider the consequences," said the race promoter.

He also questioned the lack of professionalism of a local newspaper, which the driver was another racer, Cody Parkhouse, as being responsible for the accident.

"An irresponsible newspaper, published the name of a racer who was not responsible, affecting his reputation and image. The information must be handled professionally and the journalists all do need to be more concerned with their sources being reliable. They said we hid information when we never did," he said.

Finally, he said that the spectators continue to cause problems, "when something happens, the criticize it and speak without having the facts. On social networks there are many baseless comments, made flippantly," he said."

Baja Racing Fan from Mexicali, Baja California, Arturo Elias:

"The deceased child was on the side of the road sitting at a table eating with his dad, the car left the road hit him in the head. While it is true that many people do not take care, we must not generalize, there is nothing to protect the attendees to watch the races."

Cody Parkhouse comments:
"We didn't hit anyone. Nobody was arrested. At the finish line score and the police asked my dad to go to the police station and give our side of it. When they found out it was when I was driving they called and asked me to go to the police station also. I gave my side (which wasn't much as the incident didn't involve us), and they let us go. As we were leaving they got confirmation that it was another car."

Austin Farner said, "it was not the Parkhouse car but another car who hit them.....but yes Parkhouse car was arrested at the finish and put in cuffs".

"A minor died when run over Saturday afternoon, presumably by one of the participants in the Baja 500. The accident happened in the Valle de la Trinidad district, and the victim was a 13-year old named Juan José "N". The events were reported around 6:30PM on a local road used as a part of the race route for the Baja 500, where the minor lay dead. According to the first official data, it is believed the vehicle as a Trophy Truck in the Baja 500, however, this is not certain since the driver was not detained.
