Street race kills innocent driver

Denver Post July 15th, 2009

A race between two vehicles on Aurora streets last night resulted in a crash and the death of an innocent driver, police said.

The fatal crash happened at about 10 p.m. at the intersection of East Yale Avenue and South Peoria Street, according to a media release from the Aurora Police Department.

The identities of the drivers involved were not released.

Police said drivers of a Pontiac G8 and a red Jeep Cherokee were southbound on Peoria Street in what witnesses described as a "race."

An older, white Chevrolet Camaro was northbound on Peoria; when the driver attempted to turn west on Yale the, red Cherokee plowed into the right front of the Camaro.

"The momentum of the Cherokee pushed the Camaro backwards through a signal light pole, coming to rest against a street light pole in the median," police said. "The Cherokee severely penetrated the passenger compartment of the Camaro, coming to rest on top of the passenger seat."

Firefighters and police arrived at the scene and found the driver of the Cherokee and the Pontiac arguing.

Police separated the two men and firefighters worked to free the driver of the Camaro, who was unconscious, and pinned in his car. He died at the scene from "massive" injuries, police said.

The driver of the Cherokee was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor injuries. The driver of the Pontiac was not injured.

Investigators do not suspect that drugs or alcohol were involved in the fatal crash, but excessive speed was a factor.

Only the drivers were in the vehicles involved, police said, and the men did not know each other.

They should throw both of them in jail for life. Stupid f***ers. The thing that irritates me most is that they were in the street arguing when police arrived, disregarding the DYING person in the white camaro.

I take that back about jail time. They should be shot.

So the dude in the Cherokee had basically just demolished the guy in the Camaro...... Yet he was busy arguing with the owner of the G8...... AND DIDN'T BOTHER TO CHECK OUT THE PERSON HE HIT?


Wow

You said it!

I have no sympathy for the driver of the Cherokee, i hope he goes to jail for a good long time. As for the G8's driver, what a moron

I really feel bad for the family of the person in the camaro....


one last thing....Instead of standing on the street arguing....WHY THE HELL WERE THEY NOT TRYING TO HELP THE PERSON IN THE CAR!!!!!!!

even if i was a passer-by i would be practically tearing my arms off trying to pry the car open to get the person out/free/easier to get out when the paramedics arrive/give first aid

This makes me sick. I am sorry, but again, we have another example of why you don't street race.

These two people deserve everything they have coming to them.

Keep it on the track!

I can only hope a very, very long time in prison and that he NEVER gets to operate a motor vehicle again. I would hope for the same for the driver of the Pontiac.

Maybe they should look at the oncoming vehicles before turning, just a thought. Was that dude on a phone or something?
Racing on the street besides the stoplight grand prix isnt right but you need to look out for yourself and keep an eye on everything around you.
Defensive driving starts with you.

not to get in the way of a good 'ol lynching, but
it looks like the camaro turned in front of the 2 vehicles.
if they had the green, the camaro driver would be at fault...
wheather they were racing or not.
the camaro didn't yield the right of way to the oncoming traffic.

side note: street racers suck
