A high school teacher and coach in California has died after one of the freakiest and strangest accidents. Fox News reported on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, that the teacher was riding his bicycle and ended up impaled by the gate in the parking lot.
Marion Adams, a teacher and track and field coach at Rio Linda High School, was heading home from practice on Monday night when the scary accident happened. According to the Sacramento Bee, Adams turned around while riding his bike and said goodbye to a student when he hit the metal parking gate.
The metal gate ended up impaling Adams' body and giving him multiple internal injuries right there in the parking lot.
It was early on Tuesday when Adams died even though he had survived two surgeries to help treat internal wounds.
"Marion was the most popular and nicest man on campus; just a great guy," Mike Morris, the school’s varsity football team coach and athletic director, told the Sacramento Bee. "It's a huge loss, devastating to our community."
A vigil was held for Adams on Tuesday evening and it was attended by hundreds of students, parents, and teachers.
