A street racing crash in Dallas ended with three people dead and two injured. Now one of the drivers has been charged with three counts of felony murder, police say.
On July 30, a stolen Range Rover and a stolen Chevy Tahoe were speeding in Texas when they collided, according to authorities.
This wreck caused the Tahoe to hit a guardrail, fly into the air and then crash into a building, police said.
Two of the people inside were thrown from the vehicle and all three of the people inside the Tahoe died, officials said.
During the accident, the Range Rover crashed into a telephone pole and caught on fire, police said. Both of the people inside the Range Rover were taken to a hospital, authorities said.
FOX 4 reported that family members said the drivers of both vehicles were actually brothers.
Officials said they would be investigating the incident as a “Racing Causing Death Offense and FSRA (failure to stop and render aid) Death.”
Police said Michael Mendoza was driving one of the stolen vehicles that crashed and he has been charged with three counts of felony murder.
