No sign of street racing after vehicle fires, LAPD says
When authorities responded to reports early this morning of an auto fire in Boyle Heights, they found two cars ablaze but no drivers or passengers anywhere in sight.
The Chevy Corvette and Chevy Tahoe crashed near the intersection of East Washington Boulevard and South Soto Street at about 12:20 a.m. and caught on fire, said Los Angeles Police Department Officer Venus Hall.
Hall said there had been an earlier citizen's report of street racing in the area, but when officers arrived "they had no evidence or proof of street racing."
It does not appear that anyone was seriously hurt in the accident, but then again, no one involved stuck around.
