Lockhart has a history of excessive speeding. In 2012, he was convicted in San Bernardino County of driving faster than 100 mph, court records show. In 2014, he was convicted of speeding in Utah, according to the DMV. He was also involved in a car accident in November in Whittier, DMV officials said.
In the crash just after midnight Saturday, one of the racing vehicles slammed into a UPS truck, causing the big rig to flip over the median, smash into oncoming traffic and explode. The big rig collided with a gray Nissan, shearing its top off, and came to rest atop a red Ford Explorer.
The county coroner identified two of the three victims: Brian Lewandowski, 18, and Michelle Littlefield, 19, both of Valencia. The third victim has yet to be identified. But Teamsters Local 396, a labor union, posted on Facebook on Sunday morning that UPS truck driver Scott Treadway was one of the people who died in the accident.
