Police Seek Car Involved Race Leading to Fatal Wreck

Police need your help in solving a hit-a-run mystery. Traffic investigators are missing a key element in a four-car accident that left one person dead.

A little more than a week ago, Brian Epting swerved his Eagle Talon into an adjacent southbound lane of Abercorn Street, striking a Lexus. The Lexus spun out of control over the median into oncoming traffic.

The driver, Robert Duffy, later died.

In all, six people were rushed to the hospital. Witnesses told police that they saw Epting racing a red Mustang at the time of the accident. They also reported seeing the Mustang speeding away from the scene. That's where they need your help.

If anyone has information on this car, please call traffic investigators at 652.6650. You can also call CrimeStoppers at 234.2020. They are offering a reward up to $2,500.
