A horrible incident occurred yesterday in Western Australia, when an eight-year-old was killed.

The child had just turned eight a few days prior, and was practicing to get her drag racing license when the car crashed.

This story prompted many people to call into Tasmania Talks and share their opinions with Brian Carlton: Is 8-years-old simply too young, or was it a freak accident?
