Atwal under investigation in fatal crash
PGA Tour player Arjun Atwal is under investigation after police said what appeared to be a high-speed street race ended in a fatal crash near Orlando, Fla.
Atwal, 33, was not injured in the accident Saturday at 5:30 p.m. The other driver, John Noah Park, 48, died at a hospital, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Kim Miller said Sunday.
No charges have been filed against Atwal, the first player from India on the PGA Tour.
"At a minimum, he is facing a charge of engaging in a street race," Miller said. "We have to see if this crash rises to the level of any other charges."
The management company that represents Atwal issued a statement on behalf of him and his family. The statement said Atwal did not know Park but expressed his and his family's condolences to Park's family. It went on to say Atwal could not comment on the accident because of the ongoing investigation, which could take up to two months.
