Two Charged in Street Racing Deaths
An 18- and a 20-year-old were indicted in the deaths of eight people who were killed during an illegal street race in Maryland last February. Darren Bullock and Tavon Taylor were each charged with eight counts of vehicular manslaughter, street racing, and reckless driving.
Maryland prosecutors allege Bullock was the driver that hit a group of people from behind as they were grouped in the road watching two other cars speed off. They are unsure if Taylor hit anyone. Bullock and Taylor were allegedly driving nearly 110 mph without headlights.
The accident brought to light the illegal street racing subculture in Southern Maryland, and the depth of the attraction surprised state's attorney Glenn Ivey. "I hadn't realized [the attraction] was there," Ivey said.
