According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision happened at Elsworth Street around 7:00 PM.
Based on a report, Hanna was driving a 2006 Ford 500 going westbound on Alessandro when he allegedly accelerated, exceeding the speed limit, while competing with a dark-colored sedan. At that time, a 2005 Toyota Tacoma pickup was eastbound on Alessandro.
