Actor comedian Tony Baker’s son was killed in a car wreck along with two others when their Volkswagen turned into the path of two street racers, ripping their vehicle in half.

At 11:50 p.m. Tuesday, the silver Volkswagen turned left at the intersection of Glenoaks Boulevard and Andover Drive into the path of a Mercedes Benz and a Kia that were speeding, apparently street racing. 

The Volkswagen was T-boned by the two cars and the three were thrown from the vehicle.

‘It feels like it’s not real – we get waves of grief,’ Baker, an actor who was in the movie ‘Whiplash’ and starred in a number of TV series, like ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show,’ told NBC 4 Los Angeles about his son Cerain. ‘We sob uncontrollably. Then it’s back to regular conversation.’ 

Baker posted on his Twitter: “My heart is absolutely broken out here on the streets – but you best believe I’m STILL cracking jokes.’
