MD street racing accident

Am I missing something in this story? All the coverage I've seen shows one vehicle, a full size four door sedan, as the vehicle causing the damage. Not to offend the Ford guys out there, but when I think of street racing, one of the last cars on that list is a Crown Vic. Something seems hinky about this story..

There were people in the street watching a race and the dude in the crown vic plowed through the crowd.

Was the Crown Vic racing, or was it just some old man plowing thru a crowd of idiots in the street?

the crown vic wasn't racing. The racers took off and the crowd ran into the street to watch. The crown vic did not see them standing there because of the tire smoke and slammed into the crowd. It was probably 2 Honda Civics with big tips and Acura emblems. Word son,.........word. That'll learn em.

So, in reality, this isn't a street racing accident at all. It's a combination of a crowd of lemmings wandering into the street and the tool behind the wheel of the Crown Vic out-driving his vision.

This aint Nascar, son, where you drive thru the smoke! If you can't see, STOP!!!

Anyone know where the accident was? I was big into legal racing and MD street racing for a few years. Only raced legally, but I knew the guys that were the "upper dogs" of most of the street racing in central MD and would go hang out and watch. It wouldn't be the first time that some older guys with fast cars were at/going to a safe area to make some money on the side on a friday night, and some 16 year old in daddys car trying to show off, or some pedestrian freaking out on the wrong road, caused something bad to happen.
