CBS Denver reports on the terrible loss suffered by one Denver family who lost a loved one in what appears to be a street racing incident. Two cars were driving very fast on Jewell, in southwest Denver, when they crashed into two other vehicles near the intersection of Sheridan and Jewell. According to witnesses at the scene, one of the cars drove off after the accident. The other two vehicles involved were a Honda Civic, and a van carrying five people. The driver of the Honda was hospitalized, and one passenger in the van was killed after being thrown from the vehicle. The passenger who died was a teenager, and was not wearing a seat belt.
