January 8, 2012. 2:50 am. One life lost. Another changed forever…

“A young man died yesterday when his souped-up car was completely crushed in a high-speed smash – allegedly T-boned by a boy racer aged just 15.

Shaun FitzPatrick, 22, had signed up to participate in the controversial CannonBall Run street-legal car rally yesterday, in which 270 amateur racers circle Auckland in everything from Suzukis to Ferraris.

But at 2.50am yesterday morning, just hours before the rally was due to start, the Pakuranga man was killed by one of several cars racing through industrial Mt Wellington.

A stolen Subaru Forester ran a red light on Carbine Rd and hit FitzPatrick, who had right of way, shunting his car through an iron lamp-post and into a fence.”
