Was vehicle involved in deadly car accident racing?

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.

The collision sent the car spinning toward an embankment, which it slammed into before coming to a rest. The woman in the vehicle behind the minivan called 911. When emergency responders arrived, it was discovered that two of the three in the small car were dead. One of them had been thrown out of the vehicle during the crash. The critically injured occupant is believed to have been the one driving at the time.

Los Angeles police are searching for a silver car believed to somehow be involved in the crash. At this point, it is not clear whether the two cars were racing, but all possibilities are being investigated. As the investigation into this fatal car accident continues, the families of the two deceased men retain the right to file wrongful death claims against the party or parties deemed responsible for the accident. A successful claim could lead to an award of damages ordinarily seen in these types of tragedies.
