According to News First 5, a serious Denver car accident occurred Friday, April 15, 2011 at the intersection of Academy Boulevard and Constitution Avenue due to street racing. Officers say the driver of a 1997 Dodge viper was racing with a Subaru STI when he lost control of his car, hit the curb, and crashed into a boulder near the Sinclair gas station. It took emergency workers about an hour to get the man out of the car; both he and his 28 year old female passenger were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The Subaru left the scene; the driver of the Viper faces felony charges. Police say that they do not believe that drinking played a part in the Denver car accident.
Street racing is not only illegal, but it is also extremely dangerous. It puts the lives of pedestrians as well as other Denver-Aurora drivers at risk. In 2001, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that police listed street racing as a factor in 135 fatal crashes.
