To be fair 25 and 27 isn't that young and they should know better. It's the need to race on public roads that baffles me especially ones like the East Lancs road such a busy road. Pity it's always the innocent ones that get killed and never the idiots.

The couple that died was 19 year old lad and a 22 year-old mother, there were 3 cars involved, the two fast Audis that were racing at "upto 90mph" (each with the 25 and 27- year old men in them, that survived) and a Corsa that the couple were in that was "emerging from a side road"

I assume you are suggesting they were to blame by emerging from a side road.      Sorry but I don't agree.   In a built up area if the gits are travelling at that speed you can look and there is nothing there and in a split second they have rammed into you.    I don't expect for one moment they drove out knowing those idiots were going to arrive at 90mph.

 

They should be made to live for a few years with big posters of the people they killed on their walls.

I honestly cannot put into words on this forum how I feel about this... so I shall have to do the best I can... Unfiltered the words would look something of the following shape...

 

What a pair of F'in P's, P'in around like this and killing two innocent people, depriving a child of there mother because of there F'in stupidity trying to show off whos D' is bigger, or should I say -  based on there car size, which is smaller. I hope these stupid F'ers rot in jail!

 

I hate stories like this, I can only imagine how the families feel, and if I was them I would probably be gunning for them personally.

 

Rick, I dont believe that Foca was laying blame at all to the young couple. He was stating the observation that it was their misfortune to emerge from the sideroad when they did. I dont think anyone in the world (aparts from these two F'Wits) could lay claim to anything else.

 

I dont normally get this riled up by stories of accidents caused by eedjets, but when kids are involved the father in me kicks in and it hits me a lot more!

 

Personally I think they should stick these two endabells back in an audi and send them over Dover Cliffs at 90 mph...

Read about this one today, and what pi***s me off is they will probably get a couple months/maybe couple years behind bars. The law should be changed for driving without due care/dangerous driving, to vehicular murder/manslaughter and carry much harsher penalties. Just ridiculous. You can get more time in prison for robbing your local post office or committing fraud, than you can for running someone over when you were driving like a ****.

 

There was another incident like this earlier in the month in north london. Guy in an audi again, doing 100mph on a busy road and drove smack bang into a bus. Instant death for him and passenger was seriously injured and 12 others injured on the bus, if I recall. Once again racing, do over 3 times the speed limit. If you see what is left of the Audi.

agree with the change of law, dont get me wrong accidental death on the roads is unavoidable, but as you say, when some endabell is driving in a blatantly idiotic manner, then it should be manslaughter, murder would only be deemed if the parties new each other and had bad blood and could be proven, but I agree "Death by dangerous driving" is one thing, but it should be classed outright as manslaughter.

 

as for that london bus incident... what can be said about that! at least only the driver died!

There is a like button just to the bottom right of the text that you see above ;)

 

As for the insurance, I suspect so. This child will probably get around a 250 - 500k payout to be put into a trust fund.

 

It just beggers belief that these idiots exist, I mean, if you want to race your small genitalia, go to a racetrack, if you can afford that car, you can afford a day at silverstone to go throw yourself around and race till your hearts content.

I knew him. What's pretty horrific is some of the photo's that show the Corsa's engine about 50m away from the actual car. Unfortunately only one of these moron's can be charged as the other didn't actually hit the Corsa.

 

Picture mentioned can be seen here: http://www.mancheste...n-woman-7308023

WHo was it you knew? the charged driver, or his racing companion? or was it actually the poor fella in the Corsa?

 

It ripped the engine from the corsa, split the door in two and then the rest is evident!

 

As for one getting charged, its good that he will be charged with DBDD, but I suspect the other will be charged with wreckless endangerment, if not Dangerous Driving.
