OLNEY ? A stiff $2.5 million bail each were required for the two men arrested in connection with the crash that killed a mom and three of her sons on the Roosevelt Boulevard last Tuesday.
One suspect had previous charge before the accident so now he is in deeper trouble. These men are facing numerous charges, including murder.
Philadelphia Police Captain John Wilczynski said that they learned that the two stopped at three separate lights and then started to race. They stopped and raced alternately sustaining their recklessness until it ended in the death of a mother and her three sons.
Khusen Akhmedov, age 22, was out bail when he had the illusion of being a race car driver in in an Audi 4S that fatal Tuesday night.
Police stated that witnesses observed him racing as he went from stop light to the next with Ahem Holloman, age 29 who was driving his 1994 Honda.
There were nine witnesses who claimed that both men were almost flying and saw how Akhmedov struck down? into Samara Banks and three of her children.
Akhmedov has a previous case and with seven other people were arrested for Medicare fraud. They used an ambulance company to file $3.6 million worth of phony claims.
Last Thursday, the police saw an ambulance parked in driveway of Akhmedov in Northeast Philadelphia.
Holloman is living with his girlfriend and newborn son in a house in the Northeast and they saw his car parked which today is placed under police guard. His best friend claimed that he was racing.
Both Holloman and Akhmedov are charged with third degree murder and homicide by vehicle along with multiple related offenses and both have previous records of multiple motor vehicle offenses.
The federal prosecutor recommended that Akhmedov be held without bail but the judge freed him on $100,000 unsecured bond. Both Akhmedov and Holloman are each being held on $2.5 million bail.
Police stated that Samara and her four sons were crossing Roosevelt Blvd. at North 2nd St. in Olney a little after 10:30 oclock that fatal evening of the crash.
Both the mother and second to the youngest son Saa-sean Williams, age 1 ? years were pronounced dead at the scene; the youngest Saa-mir Williams, age 9- months was admitted to the Medical Center of Albert Einstein where he succumbed. Her third child, Saa-deem Griffin, age 4 was delivered to the Hospital of St. Christopher where he died early next day. Her eldest son and sole survivor, Saa-yon Griffin, age 5 remains in stable condition at Albert Einstein Medical Center sustaining minor injuries.
Last Wednesday night, a big crowd of family and friends were together along Roosevelt Boulevard to express their grieve and affection for mother Banks and her three sons.
All the relatives considered Banks as a doting mother. She with her children was visiting grandmother on the other side of the Boulevard last night and was going home when they were hit.
Roosevelt Boulevard is considered as the 2nd and 3rd most dangerous intersections in the state, according to a study made in 2001 by an insurance company. This intersection in two years reaped 618 crashes.
