Pennsylvania crash survivor is headed to court

A man has been charged for two deaths allegedly caused by an illegal race. The car accident happened in Pennsylvania, on state highway 16 near Beartown Road in Washington Township, Pennsylvania. The car crash happened in February, earlier this year.

The man that has been charged is a 26-year-old from Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. He was accused last month of speeding, racing and vehicular homicide. One of the individuals who died was a passenger in his vehicle, his 25-year-old fiancée. According to an eyewitness, the two were traveling in a black Subaru on highway 16, heading east when the accident occurred. The witness, the girlfriend of the driver who was allegedly racing the 26-year-old behind the wheel of the Subaru, said that they were traveling at speeds near 110 mph.

According to her 20-year-old boyfriend, they were driving down the road and were passed by the black Subaru which was traveling at speeds close to 60 mph. When he decided that he wanted to know who was in the vehicle, believing he knew them, the race began. Eventually, he drove his vehicle off of the road and did not see the accident clearly. Authorities believe that the Subaru attempted passing the other vehicle and instead crashed into a red Pontiac. The driver of the Pontiac, a 64-year-old man, and the passenger in the Subaru, the driver's 25-year-old fiancée, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 20-year-old was charged with illegal racing and in August, was charged with driving with a suspended license. The 26-year-old man accused of vehicular homicide is set to begin court proceedings in December.
