Another street racing death?

Comments Off

The drivers of two vehicles that appeared to be racing are apparently responsible for the death of one man and injuries to four other people in a multi-vehicle auto accident in downtown Los Angeles yesterday according to police.

The driver of an involved passenger car died at the scene when his vehicle was struck by a SUV, according to Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

The male SUV driver was taken to County-USC Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries accord to Brian Humphrey of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

One of the injured was a pedestrian. Two other people, a man and a women, were also injured. It is not clear if they were passengers or pedestrians.

This story was reported by ABC7 News.

If in fact this was a street racing situation I fully expect the racing drivers will be charged with vehicular manslaughter. The number of street racing fatality accidents seem to becoming common place in Southern California. It is necessary for the police to crack down on street racing and the District Attorneys to charge all involved parties with vehicle homocide. The injured and the family of the deceased should be holding the racers financially responsible for the injuries and losses they have caused.
