Two cars appeared to be racing when one lost control, hit an SUV, then slammed into a wall on 190th Street early this morning, a witness told photographer JP Cordero.

The driver of the second car remained at large, Cordero said.

"There were skid marks all the way down the hill," he said. "They gave me the impression that the car was sliding sideways halfway on the sidewalk/iceplant and the street."

A spokesman from the Redondo Beach Police Department was not available for comment.

First reports can often have some incorrect information. However, you'll see that the Redondo Beach Police Department has put out a press release, which I have quoted in full in the followup story. Did the police get it wrong? Why did the accident happen?
