In a very sad and very weird story, a man lost his life after being run over by a tank, driven by a Jelly Belly executive's husband.

Oh, and it happened during a family reunion.

Apparently, the family-owned confectionary company is staffed with lovers of big military stuff. They need people to maintain and handle that big military stuff. Kevin Wright was one of those people.



The Los Angeles Times sheds some light on this strange story:



The accident occurred about 2:25 p.m. Saturday afternoon on the property of fourth-generation candy maker Herman Rowland Sr. during a family reunion, authorities said. Rowland is a collector of the military vehicles, which he stores in a restoration facility known as "The Tank Barn," the Daily Republic reported.

Rowland's daughter, Lisa Rowland Brasher, was named chief executive in March and reports to her father, who is now the company's chairman. It was her husband, Dwayne Brasher, 62, of Vacaville, who was driving the 1944 M5 tank, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol said the victim was Kevin Wright, 54, of Suisun City, Calif.



Here's a picture of Wright:



Maybe the Jelly Belly family will stick to more pacifist hobbies in the future.

Another unordinary option has been added to the list of adult beverage-inspired Jelly Belly jelly beans that is sure to inspire curiosity. The new beer-flavored jelly bean is intended to resemble a Hefeweizen-inspired ale. Though this flavor does not contain any alcohol, it is only marketed to adults.

Now they just need to come up with a pretzel-flavored bean to compliment this new flavor...perhaps a lemon bean will do as well.
