Why street racing is so dangerous, killed my stang
Why street racing is so dangerous, killed my stang
Late last night I was headed home from hanging out with some friends. I was making a left hand protected turn at an overpass when I herd two cars wide open, my light turned yellow and I was all ready in the intersection. I slammed on my brakes and an old z28 camaro took my front end off. Then a second latter a dodge durango finished me off. They where racing from the light at the other side of the bridge. My light is supposed to time to theirs but then you haul butt you get to mine way to early. This is what happens. I am in a lot of pain but I will be OK, passenger of the durango broke her arm badly, camaro was not hurt. The durango left a 32 foot set of skid marks before hitting me this hard, May i remind you this is only about 6 or seven car lengths after there light. After hitting me the camaro did a few donuts and ended up on the opposite side of the road facing the opposite direction he was headed about 160ft away, cops issued no tickets, they are turning it over to investigation because the two cars said I ran the light. Nice hey? If your going to race do it safe and out of the area of heavy traffic, this was at a highway intersection off the main road of my town. I have no idea the future of my car now, I have over $60 invested in it and the last three years of my life. All gone cause a camaro had to prove to a DURANGO it was faster.

Well, seeing as nobody got issued a ticket, you should of just beat the **** out of the driver of the camaro and durango (if you hit women) and got one just for good measure. I'm sorry about your loss, you had an absolutely beautiful stang and I hope to see it running again, hopefully for free with a nice big settlement check from the dumb a$$ drivers

Damn bro your car was dead to right sexy and all because a z28 wanted to race a durango i would sue the **** out of those drivers for everything i could and possibly take it up in criminal court to and while your there get money as well for damage and loss. I got ran off road 1 year ago and i got a settlement check for just over $50,000 so good luck and my car just messed up front suspension and bumper.
thanks, I hope it can be fixed but it was hit hard, still runs good, no loss of fluids or under subframe damage i don't think, The bad thing about this is the guy in the camaro one of his friends showed up who saw nothing and made a statement that i ran the light. I went to take pictures of the area and there are two sets of burn out marks that match the black marks before impact, "RACING" I took pictures and have alot of things they will both be hard up to explain to the police. I hope this don't get blamed on me.
people where doing ever thing they could to get out of the area. it was at 2 AM, bar closing time, think everyone was drunk or something, car where running over parts of my car just to get out of there
should also be skid marks from the camero spinning out.. dont most intersections nowadays have camera systems?
EDIT: hell id take pics there light witht he double skid tracks from there launch.. Cop should of been able to tell that durango was hailin *** by the skid marks it left.. no car doing 35-45 is gonna leave a skid mark like that. now if that was canton where i live those kids would of all been arrested..
i mean i plowed a 96 taurus .. in my 05 fx4 f150 i was doing 45 and i locked up my brakes.. i didnt even skid.. some thing will way in ur favor im sure..
when u go to court just throw the card out there.. I spent so and so much time and money, look at my driving record why would i run a red light and risk it.
Wow dude that really sucks, and for them to say you ran the light is ridiculous, i would of wanted to kick the Camaro drivers *** for hitting you then on top of that blaming you then secondly for racing a freakin Durango. Of all cars to race you wanna prove your quicker to a Durango?
I've been in some accidents, one recently, and let me say it's hell! Thank god you're okay! Material is replaceable; Health isn't. I advise you to go to a good chiropractor too man. I go 2-3 times a week and it helps tremendously! By the looks of your car, your spine may be unaligned- kinda like a cars front tires and may cause major future problems. Whiplash sucks as$!!!
