Street racing killed a 9-year-old girl in Pleasant Grove earlier this year.

Today a Dallas Police Officer is in critical condition after he crashed his own Ford Mustang into a tree on Mockingbird Lane Sunday. Police suspect he was racing with another car when he lost control of his vehicle.

Meanwhile, at the intersection of Hampton and Davis, a bunch of Paul Walker wannabes doing high-speed donuts, putting peoples’ lives in danger for the spectacle of it.

One thing you can say for the fast and feckless: they’re less likely to win a Darwin Award than the guy out there trying to get as close as possible for cellphone video.

City Councilman Jaime Resendez wants the Department of Public Safety to help Dallas combat illegal street racing after witnessing how widespread it is during a police ride-along in November.
