Driver Seriously Injured in Buellton Vehicle Collision

I'd like to see meaningful demographics. Is it mostly young men, a loosely affiliated "gearhead" group, a competition to settle something as in the move "Grease"? Would some variety of sanctioned, overseen course or drag strip allow them to compete w/o the grim results and danger to others on the road? Or is it something darker involving drink or drugs and the isolating effect of Covid? If stats show a major pick-up, we'd best get a handle on the cause and try to ameliorate it.
