BAYTOWN, TX – A 19-year-old driver was killed in a possible street-racing accident on FM 1942 in Baytown last night, according to KHOU.

The crash happened in the 6500 block of FM 1942 Rd, near N Main Street, at about 7:30 p.m., when the driver of a Dodge Challenger and 19-year-old Avyn Craig were reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed and racing side-by-side.
