A fatal Southern California crash during a street race has claimed the lives of three people with the tragic news of the death of actor Paul Walker while street racing still fresh in the memory of many Orange County residents. According to a media report, two drivers were racing when one of the motorists lost control of his vehicle and swerved into a UPS big rig truck. The UPS truck crashed into a center divider and flipped over before colliding with two other approaching vehicles. An explosion was triggered by the crash between the vehicles according to a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol (CHP). Three people died at the scene, and four more suffered injury. While street racing constitutes a negligent driving practice that could give rise to liability to those injured or killed and their families, this incident raises a number of confounding issues.
