Fatal Crash Involves Golfer

3-12-07

PGA tour player Arjun Atwal is under investigation after police say he was involved in a high-speed street race this past weekend that ended in a fatal crash in Orange County, Florida.

State troopers say it appears Atwal and 48-year-old John Park were racing when they both lost control of their cars.

Park died after his car crashed into a ditch.

Investigators say Atwal and Park were traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour.

Atwal also crashed his car, but he survived.

No charges have been filed, but Atwal could face criminal charges later on.

The Florida Highway Patrol says they are seeing more people participating in street racing, even mothers and older adults.
