Alleged street racing leads to innocent man's death

Speed limits and traffic laws are in place to help keep traffic moving in a safe manner. When these laws aren't followed, anyone who is on the roadway with the person who is disobeying the law is in danger of being involved in an accident that can injure or kill. A recent incident of suspected street racing ended up killing a 36-year-old man.

The accident happened around 1:00 on a Friday afternoon along Crenshaw Boulevard. A man in a Chevrolet Cobalt was racing against a person in a Chevrolet Camaro.

During the race, the man in the Cobalt lost control of his vehicle and ended up swerving across all the lanes on the road. It slammed into the center median and became airborne. When it came down, it landed on top of a Honda.

The man who was driving the Honda had to be cut from his vehicle. Before rescue workers could free him, the man died.

A security video of the events was made available to the public to attempt to catch the driver of the Camaro because he fled the scene of the accident going northbound on Crenshaw Boulevard. The driver of the Cobalt suffered injuries, but was arrested after being treated. He was booked on suspicion of murder.

Losing a loved one in a tragic traffic accident is a horrible event. Survivors might opt to seek compensation to help defray the costs associated with the person's final expenses. Even if the driver responsible is facing criminal charges, it is still possible to seek compensation from them in a civil case.
