Toronto Police now say the driver who ultimately killed a 17-year-old cyclist in Scarborough earlier this month was street racing.

Late in the afternoon of August 1, Immanuel Sinnadurai was riding his bike near Sheppard Ave E. That is when he was hit by a BMW 323i.  Sinnadurai died in hospital.

The driver of the BMW, a 16-year-old boy, is now charged with criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving causing death (street racing).  

The driver of a second car, a Honda Civic is also charged. 22-year-ld Johan Vax is charged with dangerous driving causing death (street racing).

Friends have described Sinnadurai as generous, funny and smart. He planned to study nursing. Friends tell the Toronto Sun he had been volunteering at Malvern Christian Assembly just down the street from the crash site just before the run-in.
