Comedian Tony Baker Launches Petition To End Illegal Street Racing After Son Was Victim Of Fatal Car Crash
Comedian Tony Baker is fighting for a change after the death of his son. According to reports, Tony Baker’s son, 21-year-old Cerain Baker, and two other young adults died earlier this month from a street race gone wrong in Burbank, California. A 4th person involved in the incident is reportedly still alive and was taken to a local trauma center following the tragic event.
During a press conference, Burbank police shared that Cerain Baker and three others were ejected from their silver Volkswagen after the vehicle was hit by two other cars that were reportedly racing. The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner reported that Cerain, and the other two young adults, died accidentally of “multiple blunt force injuries.”
During an interview, Tony Baker spoke on his son’s death and said that it
“feels like it’s not real.”
“We get waves of grief. We sob uncontrollably. Then it’s back to regular conversation.”
Tony Baker recently launched a petition to stop illegal street racing. He shared the link online and said,
“We Got A Petition Goin For Our Babies. Do Us A Solid And Sign The Petition. It’s Free. LETS GOOOOO”
The petition reads,
“The Four innocent victims were simply traveling to their destination, but unfortunately crossed paths with the alleged “street racers”. As they were making a left turn at the intersection of Glenoaks Blvd and Andover drive (Burbank,CA). they were struck violently by one of the cars speeding.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the young victims involved in the car crash.
