Sudden Death: Drag Race!


ACCOKEEK, Md.— A car plowed into a crowd that had gathered to watch a drag race on a suburban road early Saturday, killing eight people and injuring at least five, police said.

Police said the white sedan was not involved in the street race but accidentally drove into the crowd of about 50 people that had spilled onto the highway to watch two racing cars speed off.

“There were just bodies everywhere; it was horrible,” said Crystal Gaines, 27, whose father was among the dead.
