Street Outlaws driver Izzy Valenzuela was arrested and charged with murder for his part in a street racing crash that claimed the lives of two people in Los Angeles on February 25.
Izzy “Performance” Valenzuela was racing against Michael Gevorgyan on when one of the drivers lost control, according to police. The car careened into a crowd, killing two people and injuring a third.
The Street Outlaws star was driving a Nissan GT-R.
