Racing Ford Mustangs hit a street sweeper early Monday night, injuring all off the workers inside the vehicle and killing one worker at the site of the accident.
Witnesses say they saw the two Mustangs racing on Lake Forest Drive, north of Highway 121 in McKinney, TX. At least one of the racing cars hit the street sweeping vehicle and flipped it. The workers were stuck inside until they could be rescued by firemen and paramedics.
At this time, no identities have been released of those involved in the incident. Police said they believe alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The men racing were taken to area hospitals, but at this time doing fine.
Just think about this for a second. How fast must these cars have been going to flip a huge street sweeper? Those things are about three times the size of a Mustang!
I've said it once, I'll say it again. Unless you're at the Texas Motor Speedway, don't race your car. You don't have to be a car accident attorney to figure out that racing anywhere but at a designated race track is a bad idea. It puts you and everyone around you in danger! Just because you drive a fast car, doesn't mean you have to show it off.
I'm sorry for all that were involved in this avoidable accident. It's definitely a sad one.
