Pro Golfer's Street Racing Madness Leads To Death

Most of the time, it seems that street-racing-tragedy stories involve the likes of Fox Mustangs and bewinged Civics, with 19-year-old participants hopped up on Zima, etc. But not this time; what started out as a harmless 100+ MPH street race on a suburban lane in Orlando turned into one of those grim car-whacks-tree scenarios when PGA Tour player Arjun Atwal's racing opponent lost control of his Mercedes in a curve. Atwal, behind the wheel of a 2006 BMW during the incident, was not injured, but the Florida Highway Patrol will be asking him a lot of very pointed questions. There goes that endorsement deal!
