DALLAS — Editor's note: This story has been updated with details about the arrests.
Police have arrested two people accused of hitting and killing an elderly pedestrian during a late November apparent street racing crash in east Dallas.
The crash happened about 2:15 p.m. Nov. 27 in the 10100 block of Ferguson Road, just south of Gus Thomasson Road.
A Chevrolet Impala and a Chevrolet Camaro were traveling south on Ferguson when the Impala struck and killed a pedestrian, police said in a news release. Police described the victim as elderly but did not provide more information.
Both drivers, later identified by police as Andrew Martinez,18, and Brayan Ontiverosmontoya, 19, fled the scene, according to police. They were later arrested on Dec. 6 and each charged with a count of racing causing serious bodily injury and a count accident involving death.
Dallas has tried to address street racing over the last year, including forming a street racing task force that issues citations and makes arrests. In one weekend this summer, the task force arrested 81 people across 11 so-called "takeover events" where drivers block vehicles to race and perform stunts.
