MILLCREEK, Utah (ABC 4 News) - People in Millcreek said when the sun goes down, 700 East turns into a speedway near 4500 South.
"It upsets me," Derrick Jones, a neighbor, said. "They use the road all the time for racing."
Street racers speed for bragging rights, but they also boost a big disturbance. "You just hear the engines just roar and then you just hear them taking off," Ashly Wagner said.
Wagner said the racing gets fast and furious around midnight. "You just wait for that crash," Wagner said. "It's a scary thing."
A car crash between two drivers on 700 East and 4500 South on Thursday night left residents wondering if racing was responsible.
A Unified Police Spokesman said road rage was likely the cause of the accident, but excessive speeds played a factor.
"Kids are kids," Jones added. "They've got to think about what they're doing."
Wagner dreads the day racers don't see the finish line. She said kicking cars into high gear isn't worth the risk.
"It terrifies me," Wagner added. "I wish it would stop."
If you see street racers in your neighborhood, police urge you to call them.
