Seven vehicles were involved in a fatal wreck outside the state of Indiana recently. The wreck was started by a 38-year-old who was speeding through the streets of Los Angeles, allegedly in an act of illegal street racing. The other person involved in the street racing later told police that he was simply scared of the 38-year-old and trying to get away from him. Whether that is true or not will be left up to the police to fully investigate.
Of greater importance are the 38-year-old’s behavior and the accident he caused. Traveling in the range of 80 to 90 miles per hour, the young man crashed into the back of a vehicle that became so damaged that it was tough to identify what type of vehicle it actually was. It appears to be a Nissan, and the 62-year-old driver of the apparent Nissan was killed in the wreck.
The Nissan then spun off and into multiple other vehicles, with numerous people in those vehicles suffering injuries. It was later found that the 38-year-old was also intoxicated at the time of the street racing incident.
Street racing is illegal and reckless, and the terrible results of this behavior are made all too clear in this story. Innocent people suffered because of this 38-year-old’s horrible decision. Victims of car accidents that are caused by negligent drivers should consider legal action
