Drag Racing In Chicago Leads Death To Parents

In Chicago, Illinois a forty-three year old father was driving his three children and wife in their 2010 minivan around 7:45 pm around 137th Street. At this time, a 2001 Buick Regal and a 2005 Nissan Altima were traveling at a high rate of speed allegedly street racing. The authorities state that these two vehicles ran a stop sign. A witness to the accident estimates these two vehicles were traveling 80 mphs when they struck the minivan.

The impact was so severe that it caused the mini van to overturn and lad in a nearby lot. The accident claimed the lives of the mother and father, and injured the three children, ranging from ages 4-8 years old. The children were taken to a nearby hospital and are expected to make a full recovery.
