An inquest into the death of a 20-year-old woman during an off-road demonstration in an Edmonton parking lot has heard details of how the accident happened. Melinda Green was killed in May 2013 in a so-called stacking stunt, in which a Jeep climbed up the front wheel of aother to display the flexibility of its suspension. Green died when she was struck and killed by one of the vehicles. Bob Weber of The Canadian Press says witness Haylie Thomlison testified there seemed to be little discussion beforehand about how to do the stunt. (The inquest heard yesterday that the event took place at a shopping mall, with a crowd of about 100 watching from distances of between two and seven metres. The vehicles were to hold the formation with their engines off and brakes engaged, then slowly dismount in reverse.)
