The deadly crash near 2nd and Clybourn happened early on October 23rd after police say Randhawa, driving a black Lexus, ran a red light, striking an Uber car. Court documents indicate Randhawa was speeding and driving drunk. The speed limit in the area where the crash occurred is 30 miles-per-hour.

Randhawa, who officials say left the scene of the crash, along with his passenger, turned himself in on October 24th. Court documents indicate he planned on reporting the Lexus he was driving as stolen after the crash.
