Street racing proves to be a deadly venture

A New York man and his two children are dead after a street racing incident ended in a fiery crash. One of the drivers was indicted on vehicular homicide and drunk driving. Charges were brought to three others for varying crimes. This horrific occurrence is one example of street racing that proves it to be a deadly venture.

A 24-year-old man who was allegedly one of the drivers pleaded not guilty to 41 different counts. This man was driving under the influence at speeds that reached 100 miles per hour when he slammed into the car of a family of four. The family’s vehicle immediately burst into flames. The accused man and others stood by and ignored calls for help from the lone survivor of the terrible crash, the mother.   

The accused man and his friends were driving back to New York City in separate vehicles. The accused was trying to catch up with his friend’s vehicle when he hit the vehicle of the family.

The man has pleaded not guilty to reckless driving, and his attorney has disputed claims that he did not try and help the family. The attorney has also disputed claims that the man was intoxicated. 

An additional 23-year-old man was charged with facilitation and fleeing the scene of the accident, among additional crimes. This man’s attorney submitted a plea of not guilty on behalf of his client.

Anyone who has been in a car accident as a result of someone else’s actions may benefit from speaking with an experienced attorney.
