Street Racing Leads to Fatal Accident
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
street racing accident took place in Saint Louis, Missouri over the summer. The accident resulted
in the death of an innocent driver. The racer was operating his vehicle
on Lindbergh Boulevard, when he hit an SUV, injuring the driver. The driver
of the SUV passed away the next day. Last Wednesday, the man who struck
the SUV was charged with second-degree murder and “persistent offender”
DWI. The other man involved in the racing does not seem to have any charges.
Based off of the accident reconstruction, it seems as though both men
were traveling at a speed over 110 mph.
Street racing is extremely dangerous and poses a threat to innocent drivers
on the road and the drivers involved. For every 1,000 people that take
part in street racing, about 49 people are injured. Additionally, speeding
is a factor in one out of every three fatal accidents. To make the roads
a safer place, follow all traffic safety laws and regulations.
