Drag Racers on Magnolia Avenue not only ran a red light, hitting an SUV killing the Grandfather who was driving his 5 and 11 year-old grandkids who are in critical condition, also leaves nine people looking for a place to live after one of the dragsters hit the Safe Haven Teen Empowerment House where they were living.
Lawrence Williams founder of Safe Haven says one of the residents had to sleep in his car last night because he had no where else to go.
Safe Haven Teen Empowerment House is an organization that gives at-risk teens and families in need a place to stay.
They don’t receive any grant or government funding so they don’t know how they’ll pay for repairs. You can mail donations to 3010 Magnolia Ave, Knoxville, TN 37914 or contact the organization at (865) 334-4806.
The two dragsters are charged with felony reckless endangerment and drag racing. Additional charges are pending.
