This bit is scary,

Information regarding the incident is still somewhat vague, but it’s been widely reported that the factory-backed KTM rider hit a man-made “booby trap”

This is sad news.

From http://www.moto.it/sport/kurt-casell...baja-1000.html
"Mexican public often creates artificial obstacles (bumps, potholes and other nonsense) to embarrass the pilots and take them back to video. The organization makes in fact warned the contestants and asks them to pay close attention when, in the middle of the desert, are isolated groups of viewers. They could be there to take the effects of their trap."

from Taylor Robert (kawasaki rider):

I want to make something very clear and stop the rumors. Kurt Caselli did not crash because of a man made booby trap, a spectator, or any other nonsense that people are saying about his accident. My teammate Ricky Brabec was the fist person to Kurt which was in a very secluded area with no Spectators. Ivan Ramirez showed up shortly after Ricky. They decided Ricky would go get help while Ivan stayed with Kurt. Even though the news didn't come out until the night time the accident happened while there was still daylight, and didn't have anything to do with racing at night. This was merely a racing accident and had nothing to do with booby traps, spectators, or another vehicle so please stop spreading rumors.

A real shame and loss to the community. Glad it wasn't a booby trap.
