A man who police believe was street racing died when he lost
control of his Honda Civic and crashed into a tree, ejecting the driver and
splitting the car in half Wednesday in northwest Houston.
Witnesses spotted the man, in his 20s, racing another driver
in the 10100 block of North Houston Rosslyn Road near Log Hollow Drive,
according to the Houston Police Department. At some point, the Honda driver
jumped a curb and struck a tree.

The driver of the other car involved in the race did not
