While I am not at all defending these guys racing 95mph in a 40mph zone, the article does say that the family was struck while making a left turn. It sounds like the street racers may have had the right of way, and the collision could have been avoided if the driver making the left turn had yielded (if he/she could even see the cars coming that fast, I don't know).
I'm just saying, everyone wants to blame 100% of it on the streetracers, and not the poor, "innocent" family. Sometimes facts get distorted, and that's how stupid laws get made and end up wasting lots of your tax money.
