Wilbur Brink
Person

A small boy killed near the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the 1931 Indianapolis 500.

On lap 162, the rear axle of Billy Arnold's car broke off at the left wheel.  The left rear wheel and tire bounced out of the speedway.  After a few more bounces, it landed in the yard of a house, where it struck and killed young Wilbur Brink.
