MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police have arrested two men and seek a third driver in a fatal drag racing collision.

According to The Commercial Appeal, three Ford Mustangs were going about 75 miles-per-hour in a 30 mph zone on Air Park early Sunday when two of them collided with a Honda Civic.

The driver of the Civic, Jessie Moore, was taken to the Regional Medical Center and died a short time later.

Police arrested 21-year-old Ontario Brown, who was also taken to the hospital. Officers also arrested Christopher Loftis, who appeared uninjured.

The driver of the third Mustang fled before police arrived.
