Phoenix — A woman who collided with one of two suspected street race cars died, Phoenix police said Monday.
They said 28-year-old Charissa Coleman was sentenced to death in the hospital after the crash on Sunday night.
According to police, Coleman was turning left on the street when his car collided with his car at high speed.
Bystanders pulled the unconscious woman out of the car and started CPR.
According to police, a 34-year-old man driving a car has been hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries and will be arrested for manslaughter after discharge.
Witnesses told police that the collision appeared to be related to two vehicles that were in a street race, one of which left the scene after a fatal collision.
Police are trying to crack down on street races around the city.
In March, the Phoenix City Council approved a new ordinance that would allow police to detain vehicles involved in street racing and reckless driving for up to 30 days.
