Gary Kendrick, one of the six people injured May 27 during the box derby race at the White Squirrel Festival, has died.

Kendrick, 66, died Saturday at Mission Hospital in Asheville.

Brevard Police Chief Phil Harris confirmed Kendrick had died and was one of those injured on the evening of May 27 after one of the box derby cars swerved into a group of people. Kendrick's obituary appears in today's paper.

The accident occurred at about 5 p.m. as two racers were going down North Broad Street in Brevard.

"One of the racers said he heard a 'pop' in his derby car, and said he immediately went right, striking six spectators," said Harris shortly after the accident.
