A confrontation with a drifter at a Westminster, Calif. gas station Wednesday resulted in a stabbing that claimed the life of  NASCAR driver Bobby East.


Westminster is normally very safe community bordered by the city of Seal Beach on the west, Garden Grove on the north and east, and by Huntington Beach and Fountain Valley on the south.
