LOS ANGELES (July 22, 2018) – One was killed and another was critically injured in a collision after an alleged street race along Central Avenue early Sunday, according to KTLA.
Los Angeles police said at around 1:30 a.m., a BMW and a white sedan were seen allegedly traveling at least 90 mph south on Central Avenue.
At the same time, a Ford SUV came out of a business between 50th and 51st streets. The BMW then struck the SUV and pushed it nearly 200 feet.

A man in the Ford died as a result of the crash. A woman was transported to the hospital where she was listed in critical condition. Their names have not been yet released.
Police added that the operator of the BMW was also hospitalized in stable condition. Meanwhile, the white sedan was able to avoid the SUV and fled the area.
Authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to locate the other suspected street racer.

Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer
It is evident that the drivers of the BMW and the white sedan will be held responsible for causing the collision that led to the death of the man and injuries of the woman involved. The motorist and another party are accused of being involved in a street race and causing the tragic incident. We hope authorities will locate the driver of the sedan and justice will then be served.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing are clearly factors, the surviving family of the deceased man will be entitled to a lawsuit against the suspect(s). Family members of wrongful death victims are entitled to a recompense for damages including funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.
Meanwhile, the family of the gravely wounded woman will have then the right to pursue a personal injury claim, seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages and pain and suffering.
