Algetta Strother Killed in Crash on Ninth Street

Mother, Son Were Street Racing in Fatal San Bernardino Accident

San Bernardino, CA (June 8, 2020) – A woman was killed and a man was arrested in a mother-son street race in San Bernardino. The fatal accident occurred on the evening of June 8 on Ninth Street.

Steven Strother, Jr. was driving a Buick Century and allegedly racing his mother, Algetta Strother, 54, who was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe. They were traveling on Ninth Street, near Waterman Avenue, when they both tried to pass a Toyota Camry. The Buick collided with the Toyota, which then caused the Tahoe to lose control. The Tahoe rolled over, hit a tree and a light pole.

Strother was ejected from the Tahoe. She died at the accident scene. A passenger in the SUV, a 21-year-old woman was injured and taken to a local hospital. The occupants of the Toyota were not injured. Strother, Jr. was arrested for DUI and vehicular manslaughter.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones Algetta Strother.
