Deadly Auto Accident Occurs in Florida
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A fatal vehicle
accident recently occurred in Upland. Allegedly, the crash was a result of a Chevy
HHR Supersport traveling at a high rate of speed, losing control, and
colliding with a tree. A witness in the area stated that the driver could
have been involved in street racing. Apparently, the Chevy was seen racing
a Camaro, but the other vehicle involved in the race has not been found.
Additionally, police have reported that alcohol could have been a contributing
factor to the accident. The Chevy was found wrapped around a tree.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 804 fatalities
occurred from 2001 to 2006 as a result of crashes in which racing was
involved. Racing on public roads is both illegal and extremely dangerous,
as traveling at a high rate of speed often leads to the loss of vehicle
control and crashes.
