Orlando, Fla. — Florida Highway Patrol released new information on Monday about two separate street-racing incidents that occurred on Orange County roadways.
Around 11 p.m. Friday night, 20-year-old Ricardo Miranda and his passenger Alejandro Narvaez, 23, were caught by a patrolling trooper street racing two other vehicles on State Road 417.
Video released by FHP shows the black Ford Mustang allegedly initiating the race.
Both Miranda and Narvaez were booked into the Orange County Jail and charged with misdemeanor moving traffic violations.
One day earlier on April 1, FHP troopers responded to a crash on Goldenrod Road and Alachua Street involving an injured pedestrian.
Witnesses told troopers the driver, identified as Garcia Santos, 22, was engaged in street racing when the crash happened.
A person standing on the sidewalk nearby suffered a broken leg from the crash.
