If only we had video from inside the car prior to the car going out of control and slamming into the tree. I'm sure the sounds of laughter and "go faster" resonated over the sounds of the revving engine. Let's just be thankful that this driver ONLY murdered those close to her and not some innocent family. Sounds as though the gene pool just got lightened by at least 2. What a loss...

You should not refer to it as an "accident". it was the result of actions the driver had control over.

What a horrible tragedy. They're lives were completely ahead of them, and they've lost it. I feel for the families that have lost them. Hopefully this will be a big warning to further street racers.

Toy guns on the street after crash? Hmmm....

Yes, we should be very thankful that this driver only murdered those close to her and not some innocent person!!! I do feel terrible about the little 12 year old! How sad!

Otherwise...NO SYMPATHY HERE...just happy they are off of our streets permanently! Sooner or later they WOULD have murdered innocents.

"A pregnant woman driving a sedan carrying four others was apparently racing another a car"

Who the hell was this, was this the future gang mom??? Wow, this has got to be the most imbecilic thing I've read in a long time. What a bunch of idiots.

Absolutely no common sense.

Wow, on the radio, they said that the woman driving had been in a late state of pregnancy. It made me wonder if she really was racing, in her 'condition' and with a 12yr in the back seat. But then I started thinking, it's fkn L.A. County, we have all kinds of stupid people here. I feel sorry for the unborn and the 12yr, since she obviously didn't have good adult supervision. The others, well they got what they deserved.

I'm not happy for their demise but I am glad that their actions didn't kill some innocent bystander.

I race semi-professionally: closed track with a '69 Mercury Cougar that puts out 719 horsepower, per the dyno - it will do an 8.5 second 1/4 mile. It's also street legal. I also ride a 2001 Yamaha VMAX that puts out 154 horsepower, per the dyno - it will do a 9 second 1/4 mile. Whether in my Cougar or on the VMAX, it never fails that I get morons and idiots revving their mom's Camry or Altima sedan engine wishing to race whenever they pull up next to me at a light. I ignore them, as their ignorance is so pathetic. They take off on green and I let them go, their ignorant minds fully thinking their car is fast - such a car will do about a 18 second 1/4 mile at best. If I were to give them a go, it would embarrass them badly - but why would I? Want to know why people who drive Corvettes and Ferraris (and myself) often drive really slow? Because we don't HAVE to prove anything - we KNOW our cars are fast. We know what real racing is. So, let's look at the stupidity of this example, key words of stupidity as to why someone would race at all, as all of these things add up to making for a very slow car: Sedan / A pregnant woman / Carrying four others / Colorado Blvd . In this state, max this car would do a 23 second or more 1/4 mile. Why would you ever think to race your sedan when you are pregnant and it is weighed down with 4 people, on a public street? That's just a lie of the mind. Your car is not fast. It's self-defeating on so many levels that it makes racing pointless. That's not racing at all - want to really race? WORST OF ALL, IT'S DANGEROUS BECAUSE IT IS NOT A RACE CAR!!! BUY A REAL CAR WITH REAL POWER, AND REAL ABILITY, AND MEET ME AT THE TRACK!!- Oh, and the "toy guns" were probably airsoft or paintball.
