The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating whether racing was a factor in a deadly crash that occurred recently. Three men -- all of whom were college football players -- occupied the small black vehicle involved in the car accident. Two of them suffered fatal injuries, and the third suffered critical injuries. Two people in a minivan -- a mother and daughter -- were fortunate enough to only suffer minor injuries.
It was nearly 7:30 p.m. on a recent Friday when the black car was said to be speeding south on San Fernando. At some point, the driver lost control of the vehicle, which crossed over into oncoming traffic in the northbound lanes. The minivan was unable to avoid the small car, and the two vehicles collided.
