Drag Racing Takes Two Lives

Police say an apparent drag race ended in a fiery car crash in Dothan Wednesday night claiming the lives of two people.

It happened on South Oates street just after 10:30 pm, when the driver of one of the cars lost control.

The car knocked down a utility pole and smashed into a street sign before bursting into flames.

Both people inside the car were killed.

No names have been released.

Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd says dental records will be used to identify one of the victims.

The driver of the other vehicle did not stop when the wreck happened.

Witnesses gave police a vague description of a red car and the search for it and the driver continues.
