In Georgia and other states, drag racing can turn deadly for the drivers and / or spectators. One such race caused the death of two spectators – Keshon Burdette – age 15 – and Kevin Johnson – age 27. The incident took place in Waynesboro Georgia. During the race, a car went out of control and crashed into these unfortunate spectators. Drag racing is a dangerous activity which can and does cause serious personal injuries and, sadly, in some instances the wrongful death of others.

The loss of a child is a parent’s worst nightmare. It is even worse when the death could have been avoided.
