2 Children Killed, Man Injured in Mead Valley Illegal Street Racing Accident

MEAD VALLEY (May 15, 2018) – A fatal traffic collision caused by suspected illegal street racing occurred on Oakwood Street Tuesday afternoon, according to The Press Enterprise and ABC 7 News.

The accident took place at around 5:39 p.m. in the area of Oakwood and Brown streets.

As per the reports, California Highway Patrol said a Honda Accord and a black Nissan Altima stopped side-by-side on the street when the two went off racing eastbound.

At the same time, a Nissan Versa was approaching from the westbound direction. The driver of the Honda Accord saw the Versa but failed to stop and struck the vehicle head-on.

The man driving the Versa and and two children, boys ages 6 and 8, were all rushed to the hospital, where the two juveniles later died. The condition of the man was not immediately known.

Meanwhile, the motorist in the Honda was also hospitalized with moderate injuries. The party is reportedly facing vehicular manslaughter charges.

CHP officials are looking for the Nissan Altima which is apparently made from around 2005. Its operator reportedly stopped briefly at the scene but then left. The investigation is ongoing.

We offer our prayers and most heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the two children killed in this senseless incident. We also wish the man a swift and full recovery.

Riverside County Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer

It is evident that the driver of the Honda Accord will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that led to the death of the innocent children and injuries of a man involved. The motorist and another party are accused of conducting a street race which is considered illegal. We hope authorities will continue to investigate the crash and justice will then be served.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing are clearly factors, the surviving families of the two boys will be entitled to a lawsuit against the suspect. 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 injured man 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.
