3 dead after NC street race wreck in Charlotte
CHARLOTTE — Authorities say a mother, her daughter and a 13-year-old boy have been killed after a wreck vehicle involved in a street race.
Police told The Charlotte Observer that 45-year-old Cynthia Furr was turning out of her southwestern Charlotte neighborhood Saturday evening on to state Highway 49 when a 2005 Mitsubishi Eclipse slammed into her Mercedes.
Authorities say Furr and her 2-year-old daughter died shortly after the wreck, while 13-year-old Hunter Holt, a passenger in the Eclipse, died Sunday afternoon.
The driver of the Eclipse, 20-year-old Tyler Stasko, has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
Police are trying to determine who drove a Camaro racing the Eclipse.
