Police Know Who Was Driving Stolen BMW In Deadly Street Racing Crash
AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)- Police in Aurora said they know who was driving the stolen BMW in the street racing crash that killed a teenager.
The victim, 17-year-old Louis Andrew Guerrero-Sanchez, died in the hospital Tuesday night.
They say on Sunday, the driver of a BMW in the race was trying to pass Guerrero-Sanchez while he was making a turn and slammed into the driver side door.
The driver and other passengers in the BMW ran from the scene leaving Guerrero-Sanchez seriously injured as well as the two other passengers in his car.
“All we know is the person who did it just left. They just left my little brother like that. He was somebody, it was somebody really important,” said Guerrero-Sanchez’s sister Claudia Sanchez.
Investigators said they have received some cooperation and know who was in that stolen BMW. The car was stolen on Dec. 20. Police said an arrest may be coming soon.
Police said several witnesses also ran away from the scene who they said were more concerned about getting in trouble for an illegal street race than in helping someone seriously hurt.
Police are searching for multiple suspects including those who ran from the crash.
