Mike Hersom's three-year-old son is a big fan of monster trucks. Typically, when they get the chance to go see the real thing in person, he jumps at it. That's precisely what Hersom did this past weekend when he bought tickets to the Renegade Monster Truck tour, hosted at Topsham Fairgrounds. "We had gone to the event last year and my son loved it, so obviously we were thinking, let's go again this year," Hersom said. He was hoping for an experience similar to years past, but things took a turn at the end of the show. "It was the last monster truck round they were going to do, so I asked my son, 'Do you want to get a little bit closer?'" That's when Hersom and his son left the grandstand and made their way to an open area near the field, joining a crowd of other people hoping to do the same. Shortly after, all of them ended up seeing more than they bargained for.
