Street racing possibly linked to fatal car accident

Street racing is one of the most dangerous activities to partake in while driving. It's also illegal. Reckless drivers who engage in street racing could cause a serious or fatal car accident. In Indiana, a recent crash may have been caused by two vehicles whose drivers were racing.

According to witnesses, the drivers of a Corvette and a Mustang were revving their engines side-by-side at a red light. Once the light turned green, witnesses say the cars took off and the drivers appeared to be racing one another. However, when the Mustang driver apparently hit the gas to overtake the Corvette, the vehicle overturned across the median. It then struck an SUV.

The SUV contained a family of three, including a 12-year-old girl. All of them were killed from the impact. The Mustang was occupied by four people, including a 10-year-old child. They were taken to a hospital where they were listed in good condition. So far, police have made no arrests or filed any charges, though that may well change.

In some cases, it can be problematic to determine what party or parties may be at fault in a car accident. In this particular car accident, both the Mustang driver and the Corvette driver may face claims for damages. The injured car passengers and the grieving families of the deceased victims are fully entitled to explore their legal options. Personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits may be appropriately filed in an Indiana civil court in order to seek monetary judgments for compensatory and perhaps even punitive damages.
