SAN BERNARDINO SPEED RACE: Drivers Injured After Crash on I-15 Freeway

Friday, March 1st, 2013

SAN BERNARDINO, California (March 1, 2013) —  Police say a high-speed race led to a multi-vehicle car crash after the vehicles collided and span out of control on the northbound Interstate 15 freeway at Kenwood Avenue, according to a California Highway Patrol dispatch report.

About 12 p.m., police say two drivers were engaged in an illegal street race on the freeway that ended when the black Dodge Charger with purple flames crashed into the back of a FedEx semi-tractor trailer truck and skidded down a hill – trapping at least one victim inside the wreckage.

The driver of the Dodge was allegedly racing with the driver of an Acura Integra that also crashed with another vehicle and ended up facing the wrong way.  A silver Toyota struck a big rig and a silver Honda Prelude was also involved and a total of 10 vehicles had pulled over on the right side of the freeway following the collision.

Several victims were transferred by ambulance to Loma Linda Medical Center for treatment of injuries sustained in the crash, the report said.

“Street racing is not only highly dangerous, but it’s illegal in the state of California,” said Attorney West Seegmiller. “Indeed, if someone is injured or killed due to someone else’s participation in an illegal street race the drivers involved would be held liable for a victim’s injuries and financial losses.”

Under California Civil Code 23109. “(a) A person shall not engage in a motor vehicle speed contest on a highway. As used in this section, a motor vehicle speed contest includes a motor vehicle race against another vehicle, a clock, or other timing device. For purposes of this section, an event in which the time to cover a prescribed route of more than 20 miles is measured, but where the vehicle does not exceed the speed limits, is not a speed contest.”
