Default Some kids just have to learn the hard way


One teen killed, two injured in crash while racing
By KEITH ROYSDON
kroysdon@thestarpress.com

MUNCIE - A street-racing accident on a remote rural road Saturday afternoon left one Delaware County teenager dead and two others injured.

The teenager killed was a passenger in one of two cars that left a Niles Township road and rolled several times in a field.

Police - who were withholding names pending notification of families - said the drivers of the two cars were street-racing.

"It appeared to be that they were racing and lost control of both cars," said county police Cpl. Jason Walker.

The accident occurred around 4 p.m. Saturday on County Road 1200-N near County Road 800-E.

"We had a witness that said they were racing, a man on the road at the time who said both cars passed him at a high rate of speed," Walker said.

The passenger in one of the two cars was pronounced dead at the scene, said Delaware County Coroner James Clevenger.

The driver of that car was in stable condition at Ball Memorial Hospital late Saturday, Clevenger said. The driver of the other car was in critical condition, the coroner added.

Walker said early indications were that the vehicles crashed and left the road after "bumping" into each other during the race.

The cars rolled after hitting the ditch along the road, Walker said.

"Both these vehicles were traveling at an extremely high rate of speed when they left the road," Clevenger said. "It was just a tremendous crash."

A request for a Lifeline medical helicopter to transport a victim to an Indianapolis hospital was canceled at about 4:45 p.m.

Enhanced 911 radio dispatchers spent several anxious minutes trying to contact one of the Emergency Medical Service ambulances transporting one victim of the accident. Dispatchers initially asked police vehicles to look for and try to stop the ambulance so advanced life support personnel could come on board. After about 10 minutes, however, dispatchers re-established contact with the ambulance.

Kids have been streetracing since man has given son his keys. Has there been a resurgence of coverage lately?

I wish someone would tell the police (and everyone else) to stop using the phrase "high rate of speed." It pisses the hell out of me!

Would you rather "low rate of speed"?

"Rate of speed" is redundant - speed is a rate! It makes you sound like a dumbass . . .

Just saw a commercial for this crap, and it is stuff like this that makes kids end up in situations as stated above

I feel for them, but you have to choose your battles. And know when to walk away... Sometimes the results can otherwise be devestating.

Uh, I think TF&TF revived interest, both in racing and in coverage.

It's just cop-speak. They say "rate of speed" all the time and don't realize it makes them sound like idiots.

Heh, the hospital is named "Ball."

...

I'm sorry, am I supposed to care that these guys went out and ended themselves? They get +1 karma for choosing to do it in a remote area and not take out bystanders, too bad the passenger died and neither of the drivers instead, though.

Ball Hospital is named for the Ball brothers - same as Ball State University and the Ball canning jars. Anyway, here's an update.
Of course they deny racing.

Fatal crash cause still under investigation
By KEITH ROYSDON
kroysdon@thestarpress.com

MUNCIE - Police are still investigating a Saturday afternoon fatality as a street racing incident, but a sister of one of the drivers maintains that wasn't the case.

Shortly after 4 p.m. Saturday, cars driven by Matt Royal, 16, and Dustin Condon, 17, ran off Delaware County Road 1200-North and rolled in a field.

Casey R. Hanna, 16, a passenger in the car driven by Condon, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Royal was transported by Lifeline helicopter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis about two hours after the accident. His condition Sunday evening was unavailable.

Condon was released Sunday from Ball Memorial Hospital.

Ashley Condon, 20-year-old sister of Dustin Condon, maintained her brother and his friends were not racing.

"It was a complete accident," she said. "Maybe it wasn't the best decision to pass two cars, but it wasn't drag racing."

One of Dustin Condon's friends agreed.

"Dusty loved that car and wouldn't race if his life depended on it," Micah James told The Star Press on Sunday afternoon.

Police are continuing their investigation but believe the accident that claimed the life of Hanna, 16, was the result of a race that went bad.

"That's still under investigation, but preliminarily, it looked like it," said Phil Clark, chief deputy of the Delaware County police.

A witness told police that the cars passed him at a high rate of speed before the crash. County police said Saturday they believed the cars were racing and had bumped each other before the crash.

Clark said the county's accident reconstruction officers had not yet officially determined the cause of the accident.

"It was definitely driving too fast," Clark said.

James said all the teenagers involved were friends who attended Delta High School together. Students were shocked and saddened to hear about the crash, he added

INSURANCE COMPANY EXECUTIVE (i.e. ):

But damn those 70 year olds, they are just as dangerous, but those old bastards vote.. we can't touch their rates."

And the Civic, Talon, and Cougar wondered why I wouldn't race with them on I-68 yesterday.



They felt the need to film me, too.
