Faye Brown, who had part of her scalp ripped off in a bizarre accident at Grand Prix Raceway in Lakewood back in January of 2007, is asking Washington State legislators to require protective guards be required over moving parts on amusement park rides.
Brown suffered severe injuries to her scalp and became bald after her pony tail got caught in the rear axle of a go-cart she was driving. After the accident, Grand Prix Raceway installed protective guards and created signage regarding securing ones hair. The legislation sponsored by Senator Dan Swecker of Rochester would require protective guards be installed on all rides across the state.
