Stockton Drag Racing Crash
Man Sentenced to 12 Years for Illegal Street Racing
In January, a racer was sentenced to 12 years in prison after killing two spectators during a 2015 illegal street race in Chatsworth, California. The racer was charged with murder and is now doing time.
One would think that the Chatsworth incident would send a strong message to any driver considering or currently participating in illegal street racing. For spectators who like to attend illegal races, this case illustrates how deadly they can become for the spectators involved.
