Queens, NY - Teens In Drag Racing That Killed 12yr Old Held on $250,000 Bail
Queens, NY - Two New York City teenagers accused of drag racing have been charged in the death of a 12-year-old boy who was injured when the cars collided.
Queens prosecutors say David Badalov, 18, and David Lakhchakov, 16, are charged with second-degree manslaughter, among other charges, in the death of Aviv Babayeva.
The teens are accused of racing up to 76 mph on a street last Wednesday in a 35 mph zone.
Prosecutors say one of the teens lost control of his car, slamming into the other teen’s SUV and striking a parked van.
Babayev was sitting in the backseat of the car that struck the other vehicles.
He suffered a broken pelvis, thighbones, brain swelling, and trauma to his head and torso. He died Sunday.
The teens are each being held on $250,000 bail.
