Street racing leads to a deadly crash between a go kart and a motorcycle FOX 2/Screen Shot

A motorcycle and go kart were involved in a crash in Detroit on Sunday evening, and police believe the crash was a result of street racing.

Both vehicles were reportedly speeding on French Road on Detroit’s east side when the go kart reportedly turned in front of the motorcycle. A 21-year-old driving the go kart died, and a 30-year-old driving the motorcycle is in serious condition according to FOX 2.

“Over the last month, we have followed and tracked anywhere between three to 500 street races around the city of Detroit, primarily on Saturday night about 2 or 3 in the morning,” said Detroit Police Chief James Craig. “It’s extremely dangerous.”

The police are still investigating the details of the crash. Regardless of whether street racing was the cause of the accident, it should serve as a reminder of how dangerous street racing is and how it puts multiple lives in danger.
