Mustang-Camaro Street Race Ends With Totaled Cars, Jail Time

The owner of a 1998 Camaro Z28 just happened to have his buddy shooting video during a street challenge from a fourth-generation Mustang. No one invited the Crown Vic that pulled into the street, triggering a crash and jail time.

As the video shows, all three cars were totaled, but no one was seriously injured. The Camaro owner says the video now serves as a cautionary tale:

Because of this accident, I ended up being sentenced to 120 days in jail, two years of probation, and 100 hours of community service. The driver of the Mustang was sentenced to six months of prison among other things. I do not recommend illegal street racing to anyone. It is highly dangerous. My life has been affected by this since it happened, which has been almost three years now.

You could be the best driver in the world, but you never know what the other person is going to do

No race on street!

Race on street, go to jail. Race on track, win trophy.
