Los Angeles, CA – Man Killed Woman Injured in Fatal Street Race Crash on Central Avenue
Los Angeles, CA (July 22, 2018) – According to a local and trustworthy news outlet in Los Angeles, one man was killed and one woman was critically injured following a crash that allegedly occurred during a street race on Central Avenue early Sunday morning. The fatal wreck that took place after a white sedan and BMW were witnessed speeding down Central Avenue occurred at around 1:30 a.m.
Los Angeles Police officials stated that the two vehicles involved were estimated to be traveling at around 90 mph. The crash took place when an SUV was apparently pulling out of a local business and was subsequently struck by the speeding BMW. The collision happened between 50th and 51st Streets and the impact reportedly pushed the SUV about 200 feet.
One man who was in the SUV died from the injuries he sustained in the accident, while a woman was critically wounded. The female who was injured in the SUV was immediately transported to a local hospital where she is currently listed in critical condition. The driver of the BMW was also injured in the collision and that person is currently hospitalized but in stable condition. The driver of the sedan reportedly escaped the crash and fled the scene.
The names of those involved in this accident have not been released at this time. Investigators are presently searching for the other street racer as they are conducting a thorough investigation into the crash.
We offer our most sincere thoughts and prayers to the family members of the deceased victim as we warmly wish for a full recovery for the other victims.
