2010 Camaro SS fatality in North Carolina. 120 mph hit.

Charlotte N.C. -- A former N.C. State University football player was killed in an early Sunday wreck when a speeding Camaro slammed into the car in which he was riding, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report.

Edrick Smith, 29, was in the backseat of a Honda Accord, which police said was split in two from the force of the collision just before 1 a.m. at the intersection of North Tryon Street and Salome Church Road.

Police say the driver of the Camaro ran from the scene and was later tracked down by a police helicopter and officers with dogs searching nearby woods.

Hugo Fernando Rosillo, 30, was taken to the hospital after he was arrested. He is charged with second-degree murder, felony hit-and-run and driving while impaired.

I've never seen a wheel come apart like that one photo.
The outer section and the rotor, but the rest of the wheel is gone.

I was scared driving 90 down a road where I knew a deer could shoot out of the brush.
You have to be a moron to do 120 where cars can appear.


You gotta see Jack.

This is one of those OMG moments.very sad... I cannot believe how stupid some people are. How much money has been spent to educate people about drinking and driving. I pray for all of those involved...including the driver. He will remember and regret what he did for the rest of his life. This kids family has to be in shock....The bad part to this...the people who read this will not learn anything from it and still drink and drive if they currently do.

needs no explanation

I hope Mr. "Hugo Fernando Rosillo" gets some serious jail time for his homicidal joy ride, not to mention his idiotic decision to flee the scene. Btw, this sort of thing is certainly not helping our insurance rates. Unfortunately it's not the car that's unsafe, it's these people who are getting their sorry butts in the driver's seat.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I'm surprised that was the only part of the Camaro to have come flying off. I thought for sure that Camaro would have been in worse shape than it was after tearing a car in half at 120.
