The shocking moment was captured in horrifying footage, showing two cars zooming ahead just moments before a fatal collision with a man and a woman.
The devastating accident occurred when Gerald White recklessly slammed his car into another vehicle, leading to a chain reaction that tragically involved innocent pedestrians. 18-year-old Lindsay Weakland lost her life on the spot, while 34-year-old Timothy Ogden was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his injuries later on.
