Siblings Die in Possible Racing Accident
Speed is one of the biggest factors in many automobile accidents. If people would just slow down and take it easy on the roads, the number of fatalities would most certainly go down. Two siblings, students at Banning High School, unfortunately did not heed this advice.
It was in the middle of the afternoon at the intersection of Island Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway. A car packed with kids was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes on PCH and lost control, slamming into another vehicle. The girl was in the driver’s seat while her brother was in the passenger seat. Two unidentified girls were in the backseat as they sped down the highway. The girls were sent to the hospital, and the driver of the other vehicle was released with only minor injuries. The siblings, unfortunately, died in the crash.
Police are believing that the entire circumstance happened because the two kids were racing, but others were not so sure. “I guess she was just driving pretty fast and it just happened but I don’t think it was racing,” says a friend of the victims. Police are currently searching for a truck that was involved in the accident. Our prayers are with the families of those involved.
