MIDLAND - Racing in Midland sent two people to the hospital and put one man behind bars. A 19-year-old Richard Moya was arrested after racing down Wall Street and fleeing the scene when the truck he was racing crashed. 

According to the report, two pick-ups were racing when one drove into oncoming traffic crashing into a dually truck. Two people were taken to the hospital. One was airlifted to Lubbock with severe head injuries.

Moya was driving the pickup that did not crash and fled the scene. Police later picked him up at a home. Moya claimed they weren't racing but surveillance video and witnesses proved otherwise.
