A 57-year-old Los Angeles man who was struck and killed by a speeding car not long ago may have been the victim of an illegal street race, police believe. The driver who was involved in the fatal car accident was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide. It is not clear if the other driver involved in the race will also face charges, as police did not have information about who he or she is.
According to KABC-TV, the victim was crossing Compton Avenue near his home when he was struck by a car. It appears that the driver slammed on the brakes but was going too quickly to stop in time.
