Posted on October 25th, 2012 No Comments

A 19 year-old street racer killed his 20 year-old passenger, a 43 year-old father, and his 15 year-old son after losing control of his car and driving into oncoming traffic. The fatal accident occurred in Miami early Tuesday morning on Flagler Street and 58th Avenue. Authorities say the teenager was racing two other vehicles before the crash.

The driver hit a Ford Expedition carrying a family of four. The father and teenage son died at the scene; the mother and 12 year-old child were both taken to the hospital in critical condition. Their daughter, who was not involved in the accident, says her parents had recently gotten back together after a brief separation.

According to NBC Miami, the impact caused the racer’s car to spin several times and ripped out its engine. The 19 year-old was ejected from the vehicle and is in critical condition. His passenger was also thrown from the car but died from his injuries. Police believe he may have been traveling as fast as 100 mph.
