ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. —A student who was injured earlier this month when a vehicle involved in a street race crashed into a car full of innocent bystanders has died, the Regis University School of Physical Therapy reported Sunday.
Rachel Neiman was a student at Regis, the school said.
“Rachel was a wonderful classmate, excellent student, and a steadfast friend to so many,” the school said in a Facebook post. “Our hearts go out to all those grieving for Rachel including her family, friends, and especially to her classmates who are currently spread all across the country on their final clinical rotations.”
The State Patrol is still investigating the Nov. 7 crash, believed to be the result of street racing.
The Colorado State Patrol says a Volvo S40 and the motorcycle were racing on northbound Federal Boulevard when the Volvo lost control, spun around and got into the path of a Nissan Altima at West 54th Avenue.
People were ejected from the vehicles and other victims required extrication.
