NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Drag racing was likely to blame for a spectacular and deadly crash overnight on the Saw Mill River Parkway in Dobbs Ferry Wednesday morning, police said.
As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, charges were expected Wednesday in connection with the crash that killed Christopher Seguinot, 21.
A crumpled mass of metal was pulled from the wooded area next to the Saw Mill River Parkway earlier in the day. It bore scant resemblance to the picture of a red Chevrolet Camaro that Seguinot posted to his Facebook page.
It was around midnight when Westchester County police said an officer spotted two motorists driving slowly on the northbound side of the parkway.
“Each (was) side by side, moving at a slow rate of speed and effectively obstructing the roadway,” said Public Safety Commissioner George Longworth. “The officer, believing this action to be indicative of the conduct of an unlawful speed contest or drag race, proceeded to pass these vehicles and investigate.”
