Austin Street Racing Car Wreck Claims A Life

Earlier this week, Jose Guadalupe Diaz-Hernandez, a passenger, tragically lost his life in a car wreck that appears to have been the result of street racing.  While this death was tragic, it is not uncommon. 

Last year, two women were killed when they sat at a bus stop and a vehicle that was street racing lost control and hit them. 

In 2008, the Austin Police Department acknowledged that Austin has a street racing problem and vowed to crack down on racers.  In the wake of these latest deaths, maybe it’s time for APD to reaffirm that commitment and taking additional steps to protect Austin’s roadways and motorists.
