Las Vegas police’s ‘RAID’ team cracks down on dangerous drivers
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s (LVMPD) new Racing Apprehension and Intervention Department (RAID) has made 80 arrests and over 110 citations since its formation.
Twenty-one of those arrests came from a suspected illegal trick driving event which happened on Sunday night.
Now FOX5 has learned that a deadly crash that happened on May 24 was the result of street racing.
Police say a Dodge Charger and a Chevrolet Corvette were racing each other at 100 mph near the intersection of Jones and Flamingo. The Corvette flipped after hitting a power pole, killing two people.
LVMPD is urging those who witness street racing to send information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
