student killed by car racer

This is a really sad story out of Temple City, CA, about 19-year-old Angela Chung, a Woodbury University student who was killed last week when her car was struck by an alleged street racer trying to evade authroties: Fatal crash haunts student's family. What's always the worst part in stories like this is reading about how a promising life was suddenly cut short, and now what her family has to go through in the aftermath. It's simply a nightmare.

The suspect in the incident, which also injured two others, is a 17-year-old girl who was allegedly racing another vehicle at 80mph. She is being charged with four felony counts including vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and evading an officer, causing death. She, of course, probably walked away from the wreck without a scratch.

To remember Angela, her friends and family have created a memorial scholarship in her name: Scholarship planned to honor victim of alleged street racing. The Angela Chung Memorial Scholarship will be given annually to a student studying human resources in the school of business at Woodbury University, where Angela attended. To make a donation, send a check payable to the Angela Chung Memorial Fund, c/o Staci Chung, P.O. Box 1016, Temple City, 91780. For more information, call Howard Fitzgerald, (818) 252-5207.
