RIP


As told by a Bernice Place resident.

A dark Honda Civic '93-'94 coupe raced a Ford Mustang a couple weeks ago at Ave 38 and Griffin Avenue on a rainy downpour night. The Mustang and the Honda were neck and neck speeding when the Honda accelerated, pulled in front of the Mustang, and immediately braked.

The Mustang swerved, lost control and struck two parked cars, a light pole, the concrete wall, the iron fence, and killed the driver. The Honda driver kept on going.

19 year old kid killed a 19 year old girl. Over what? Sad.

I didn't see the "pull in front of the Mustang and immediately brake" coming. What a total shame. I wonder if the "run driver" can sleep at night?

Do they even know, or care? Do they think it's fun? Do they think it's TV and everyone will just show up again in the next episode?

A story I wouldn't have known if I hadn't come here today, if you hadn't come to my blog today, if...

I wonder how often this happens.

Noticed this memorial over the street light that week, and wondered if it was just someone going too fast in the rain. Thanks for posting some details.

Racing on Griffin in the rain??? What were they thinking? I guess they weren't.
