A Spokane Valley family is preparing for something no one should have to do. They're getting ready to say goodbye to their son, 17-year-old Austin Krum, who died last weekend after he was gravely injured in a motocross race at the ORV park in Airway Heights.
"He lived for this sport," Austin's dad, Steve Krum, said.
To say motocross was Austin's hobby doesn't do it justice. The 17-year-old lived for the track, planned to go pro this spring, and spent whatever time he could perfecting his sport.
"He didn't drink, he didn't smoke, he didn't do drugs. His drug of choice was adrenaline," Steve said.
