May 4, 2021
PHOENIX, AZ – A woman was killed in a high-speed crash caused by suspected illegal street racing in west Phoenix on Sunday night.
According to Fox 10 Phoenix, the two-vehicle crash was reported at about 9:30 p.m. at the intersection of 91st Avenue and Indian School Road.
Police say a 2018 Infiniti Q50 that had been seen racing a black Chevrolet Camaro shortly before it collided with an uninvolved Jeep. The Jeep then caught fire, trapping the occupants inside.
Witnesses pulled 28-year-old Charissa Coleman from the Jeep. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries a short time later.
The 32-year-old male driver of the Infiniti was also hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. He will be booked into jail for manslaughter upon his release from the hospital.
