Charger lol




By Breaking News Staff


One vehicle left the scene of a crash on Catalpa Drive late Saturday night, leaving behind a snapped pole and another damaged car.

Deputies and medics were sent to the crash near the corner of Catalpa Drive and Golfview Avenue on reports that a white Dodge Charger collided head on with a utility pole.

Deputies found the white Charger with heavy damage and the pole snapped in half. The female driver of the car was looked at by medics at the crash scene, but refused any further treatment, police said.

The woman told police another car had run her off the roadway and then fled from the scene.

Deputies continue to investigate the crash as a hit-and-run

Speed kills..........







A body was found on the side of the road in Melbourne Monday morning. 

Investigators believe the man had been dead for two days – hit and killed in a car crash Saturday, but overlooked during the investigation.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers said a Dodge Challenger was speeding down highway A1A when it hit another car, lost control and burst into flames.

Cindy Parkinson saw the whole thing, telling Fox 35's Kate Burgess, "I had a feeling that it was going to be awful, and then when it hit the person, I just screamed and I saw a body fly way over there. The car rolled a few times and we ran over and it was on fire."

Troopers said the driver, Nancy Chancey, 59, was not wearing a seatbelt.

She was thrown into the trees and killed after her car flipped multiple times, hitting a fence and wall before bursting into flames.

Witnesses told investigators over the weekend, they thought they saw a man walking in the area before the crash, but because of the densely packed bushes and trees, no one could find him.

Monday morning, Dave Robinson and a friend found that person in the brush near his home.

"We both looked in the bushes again and saw the body," Robinson said.

It was Art Stroud, 60, who had been walking along the road when troopers said he was hit in the crash.

Stroud's brother filed a missing person's report over the weekend when he never came home.

"I felt really bad," he said. "I was sorry there was somebody else. I wanted to be wrong, but I just had that gut feeling."

Investigators are working to find out if drugs or alcohol were involved in this crash.

Motorist dies after car split by tree in crash on Detroit's east side


Detroit — A fatal car crash on the city’s east side early Wednesday morning split a Dodge Charger in half after it crashed into a tree at a high rate of speed.

Police and the coroner’s unit were on the scene of the crash at Outer Drive near Chalmers. The incident occurred at about 3:30 a.m.

An officer at the scene estimated the black Dodge was flying along at about 120 mph when the crash occurred. Fire personnel had to use the Jaws of Life to extract the body from the wreckage.

Police have released no information about the driver or why he or she was driving at that rate of speed. The two parts of the car were loaded onto a flatbed trailer and removed from the scene by 7:30 a.m.

The man killed after the car he was driving hit a tree and split in half Feb. 26 is identified as Ricky James Bradley, 28, of Detroit, according to the Wayne County medical examiner’s office.

His name wasn't confirmed until Saturday because his body was severely burned; dental records were compared to confirm his identity.

The early-morning crash involved a late-model Dodge Charger slamming into a tree on eastbound Outer Drive, just east of the intersection with Chalmers Street.

Police said the car was traveling far above the 30 m.p.h. speed limit when it hit a tree, splitting in half before the rear half stopped several feet away after slamming into a second tree.

Car looks too good tohave wrecked at 130. The brother probably killed him and is covering up with this bullshit story. He drove the car into the river and reported the brother missing. Clean and no witnesses. Allegedly. lol

A Dodge Challenger challenged a house in Maryland last night. It is unclear who won. Probably the house, I guess?P

Washington D.C. area TV station WUSA9 reports that the Challenger crashed into a house in Prince George's County just before 2 a.m. this morning. The driver was taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No one inside the house was hurt.P

The homeowner told a reporter he smelled alcohol on the breath of the driver, which is not terribly surprising.

HOUSTON – A woman is dead after the speeding car she was riding in slammed into the back of a fire truck early Saturday in southeast Houston, police said.

According to the Houston Police Department, two of the firefighters, who were inside the fire truck, are in the hospital as well as the driver of the speeding Dodge Challenger.

The accident happened around 2:30 a.m. on the outbound lanes of the Gulf Freeway near Airport.

Police said the fire fighters were working to clear a minor crash off the freeway when the Challenger came plowing into their fire truck.

“During that time a Dodge Challenger traveling at a high rate of speed ends up striking the back rear of the HFD pumper truck. The driver of the Challenger was transported to Ben Taub Hospital. He is expected to survive,” said Police Sgt. Ignacio Izaguirre.

The female passenger died at the scene, police said. The car was clearly mangled from the impact.

The driver, 27-year-old Rick Goodwin, will be charged with intoxicated manslaughter.

While authorities have confirmed that Goodwin was drunk, an off-duty police officer may also have seen him racing just before he crashed.

“He observed a pick-up truck and the Dodge Challenger passing by at a high rate of speed,” said Izaguirre.

That has not been confirmed, but still under investigation.

HFD released the following statement:

“It is always a sad event when a citizen dies, but we are fortunate that E-36 was there providing protection to the accident scene. Without that protection the fatalities could have been greater. “

The injured firefighters were taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in stable condition. They are expected to be OK.
