21-year-old Tanner Hollingsworth was driving his white 2012 GMC Yukon alongside a Dodge Challenger while drag racing on April 15. Police say he admitted to being a part of “the group” that was also blocking intersections so that cars could spin inside the ‘pit.’ While he was racing the Challenger through an intersection near Fesslers Lane, he was unable to avoid an oncoming vehicle, and crashed into the vehicle, leaving the driver with injuries. Security video from nearby businesses showed him weaving in and out of traffic and racing before the crash. Hollingsworth was charged with drag racing via a state citation and was booked on the charge this week.
