    Los Angeles Family Sandwiched Between 2 Parked Cars When Road Rage Car Crashes

    LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2007

    [​IMG]





    (AP) A road-rage crash critically injured a mother and her two small children who were crushed between parked cars, police said Wednesday.

    Two men were booked for investigation of attempted murder in connection with the crash Tuesday in the San Fernando Valley.

    The drivers of a black Nissan Maxima and a red Chevrolet Camaro got into a dispute shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday in the Van Nuys area and began racing and weaving along city streets at 50 mph to 90 mph, police said.

    The cars were "cutting each other off, they were jockeying for position," Detective Bill Butos said. "They were tapping on the brakes, one of the vehicles was tapping on the brakes, trying to cause the other vehicle to ram into the vehicle."

    In Reseda, the Camaro slammed on its brakes and the Nissan tried to avoid it and hit a parked car, Officer Jason Lee said.

    This is a horrible story. We have had quite a week in Southern California with road rage, illegal street racing and speeding hit and runs. 12 people have been injured or killed this past week alone.

    Just before this accident, there was an illegal street race that caused a 5 car pile up. A car with a mother and her two children burst into flames. Bystanders tried, but could not get to the car because of the intensity of the flames. They all three died.

    It's horrible.

    It seems things just get worse and worse. I don't understand why some people lose all common sense when they get behind the wheel. :mad:

    Hell is right, mom3dd. This family will, in all likelihood, lose their son, and the mother's life will never be the same, especially if they have to amputate her other leg. Maybe the baby will survive physically unscathed if they're lucky. All because two psuedo-men decided to get into an incident over something trivial.

    The little boy passed away last night. The drivers may be charged with murder. How sad. The father was on TV last night crying his eyes out. What a shame. All this to be one car ahead.

    When a drivers license becomes a privelege and not a right. Something people have to use responsibly to keep. Some people do not have the maturity, sense or self control to have a drivers license though. The sad thing is the people responsible will probably still be able to keep their license and be out driving around :( .

    They should be charged with murder. That's exactly what it is.

    This is so sad. I don't know how we get through to people that they are playing with lives when they drive like this.

    A woman I know lost her 18yo son this week when he was driving agressively and hit another car head on. I cannot imagine losing your child AND knowing that it was totally his fault and he had hurt someone else as well. Luckily the person he hit survived.

    How do we teach this? Is raising the driving age the answer, or does that just delay it? I don't know, but it scares the hell out of my as my children approach the teen years.

    Prayers for this poor family.
