Can anyone find an overhead view of the range so we can see where the road was?

A round leaving the range I use and hitting someone is a recurring nightmare.

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=90th%20ave%20new%20era%20mi&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wl



Scroll a little SW and you'll see where 90th and Arthur Rd intersect.



I'm not exactly sure where the range is.

Some dumbasses at a range back home were rapid firing AK's and made a one in a million shot over the berm. Cut a powerline in half



No more AK's allowed

New Era Foods?



Sounds like a bullet with a mind of its own.

Near as I can tell, West Arthur does not intersect South 90th Ave.  East Arthur does, though.  It looks slightly rural and very flat.   Can't see any berms on street view.

Maybe they meant South 69th ave? or South Water rd? Double JJ resort on the corner of S Water and West Arthur has a range......

How many times does this have to happen? Ban high powered ammo!

Seriously though, they might want to rethink the position of that backstop, or make it bigger.

It looks like the range is south and to the west of 90th.  It is next to that little road on google maps.

If I were one of the people who used that range, even if I wasn't there that day, I'd start a collection for donations to help this guy with medical costs, car repair costs and any work lost.  Voluntarily, as a sign of good will from those who use the range and don't want to see anyone crusading against the dangers of gun ranges.

Also might put a portion of it towards improving the berm, if that was actually a factor.

Just sayin.
