State Senator Henry Stern on Friday announced plans to introduce legislation cracking down on speeding and street racing.

He held a news conference with community groups and the California Highway Patrol calling for an end to the “speeding epidemic.”

KTLA spoke to a 13-year-old boy who lost his mom when a car slammed into a restaurant while doing donuts.

“I just hope that something like this never happens again,” Mitchell said.
