Graphically shows why high speed driving should be kept on the track, hope it was not a member, but...they will and should be prosecuted. Imagine it it was your mother and father, (wife and kids, any loved one) in the SUV or as a passenger in the GTO!!!

Here is some more info I found

Seems the GTO's driver already has a record, so if he is taken to court, it will probably used against him. But right now I am wishing the best for everyone involved.

Evan Andropoulos Mug Shot

Also here are some more pictures from another news site

Five injured in two-car wreck on U.S. 19 in Palm Harbor







Also not the best image, but a full image of what BN9 had chopped.

The people in the other car were 67 and 68 - damn

It's time the 'kills' section was removed and people stopped encouraging this crap. I was driving home when another GTO came beside me - I gave a friendly wave and this young looking guy hauls ass through a crowded three lane county road PACKED with traffic and parking lot entrances.

Fine, you have an empty road with no way for traffic to enter - do your vid and hope it ends well. I don't care who you are, crazy speed on streets can always end like this.

There but for the grace...etc. At 28, I had the occasional dumbass moments behind the wheel too. I was lucky - no injuries involved. Now, at 66, all I can say is that I agree with Mike V and that this is required reading for all street racers.

Happens here in Houston a lot; usually alcohol's involved as well. It's terrible that when this type of thing happens the innocent people are the ones who pay the ultimate price.
