Car overturns in speed race

A boy was taken to County-USC Medical Center after he lost control of

his car during a street race on Glenoaks Boulevard Thursday afternoon,

police said. Witnesses told police they saw two cars going about 65 or 70

cars appeared to "lock up," hit a curb and slid along the sidewalk before
