Arjun under probe in fatal crash


ORLANDO: Indian golfer Arjun Atwal is under investigation after police said what appeared to be a high-speed street race ended in a fatal crash. 

Atwal, who plays on the PGA Tour, was not injured in Saturday’s accident at 5.30pm. The other driver, John Noah Park, 48, died at a hospital, Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Kim Miller said on Sunday. 

No charges have been filed against Arjun, the first player from India on the 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.” 

Atwal’s wife, Ritika, answered the phone at their Windermere home on Sunday. She said her husband wasn’t home and declined to talk about the crash. – AP
