Tragic street racing accident
The 24-year-old mom and her daughter were hit really hard by a racer.
The teenagers were reportedly racing a gold Nissan driven by a 17-year-old boy according to the police.
Eye witness accounts claim that both Herrin and his friend were completely carried away by their drag race, switching places and lanes when the car hit Jessica Reisinger.
Tampa General Hospital confirmed that she was dead. Her daughter, 2-year-old Lillia, is in critical condition.
At the moment, the drivers have been arrested, and Herrin faces multiple charges, including vehicular homicide and reckless driving resulting in serious bodily injury.
The dangers of street racing
Street racing is illegal and highly dangerous!
In the movies and video games where races like this are replicated, there is often no mention of the high risks they represent. Our thoughts are with the family of Jessica Reisinger, and we hope Lillia recovers speedily.
