According to TMZ Sports, Los Angeles, California has very strict laws against street racing. This is the reason why Valenzuela is charged with two counts of murder despite his car not hitting any of the victims, who later died from their injuries.

He will attempt to say he’s innocent. However, if he’s found guilty, he’s facing 33-years in prison.

According to the authorities, there were approx. 60 people watching the drag race when the incident happened around 2 am PST. Henry Gevorgyan’s modified 2014 Ford Mustang lost control and crashed into the crowd.
