Did street racing cause a recent car accident in California?

Virtually every California driver is aware that street racing can lead to an accident. At high speeds, it can be more difficult to control a vehicle in an emergency even when the driver is concentrating on the road and paying attention to everything around him or her. If drivers are racing, their attention is more on the outcome of the race than potential obstacles and controlling the vehicle. This combination of speed and inattention can easily lead to a car accident.
