Texas - Street Racing Crash Kills Two 8th Graders in Houston (Video)

A street race might look cool in the highly popular “2 Fast 2 Furious” movies, but when kids do it, it is bound to end badly. Such was the case in Houston yesterday where two middle-school students are now dead and another has been arrested when a Ford Explorer and a Ford Expedition, driven by a 14 and a 15-year old respectively, were racing each other and ended up in a terrible deadly crash caught on camera.

The 14-year-old boy who was driving one of the vehicles appears to have been known to law enforcement and has already a lengthy criminal record. He was taken into custody and will be charged with failure to stop and render aid and racing, causing death. His identity was not released because he is a juvenile.

The drivers lost control of their respective SUVs when one of them hit the other.

Ms. Ivory Hunter, an aunt to one of the victims, said in shock: "Parents everywhere, double-check your kids when they ask you for your keys. He (was) only 15 years old,"

Related coverage:

"I should have seen the warning signs but I didn't. I usually catch him, but I did not catch him this morning and the results of that – it took his life."

Family members of the second victim also spoke up weeping. Ms. Della Mae Farley “It just hit my heart. My heart hurts. It just hurts."

Street racing with Ford vans is worthy of a Darwin award.
