Orlando police report that they have made an arrest in a recent drag racing incident that critically injured two people and sent eight other spectators to area hospitals. They say that the apprehension of one of the drivers, a 22-year-old Central Florida man, will lead to several charges including unlawful racing, leaving the scene of an accident involving injury, reckless driving and others. Orlando auto accident attorney James O. Cunningham and his peers in the legal community find it sadly ironic that this crash happened shortly after Orlando city officials unanimously rejected a proposed plan to make area roadways safer by allowing drag racing on area racetracks.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s 17-year-old son could face multiple charges after a recent early morning accident involving his luxury car and a house.

Police have acknowledged that the accident occurred around 1 a.m. one recent Sunday morning at the intersection of New Hampshire Street and Gerda Terrace in College Park.
