15 Year Old Girl Dies in Suspected Urban Drag Race


A fifteen year old Melbourne girl has been killed after stealing a car and participating in what is suspected to be an illegal drag race. It is thought that she was racing another 4 girls in a stolen car, who were later arrested and are cooperating.

The skid marks trailed for approximately 30 metres behind the wrecked car, which wrapped around a pole. The death adds to Victoria's tragic road toll of 14 over the Christmas/New Year period.

The Assistant Traffic Comissioner spoke out against secret drag meets, which are gaining popularity in Victoria at a rapid rate. "A short-lived thrill can cause a lifetime of tragedy and there is no place on our roads for that sort of behaviour."
