Authorities say two people accused of striking and killing another motorist as they raced down an Owosso street are in custody.

Owosso City Police Chief Michael Compeau said 19-year-old Kevin Hart and 20-year-old Charles Mitts were in pick-up trucks and were allegedly drag racing north down North Shiawassee Street on Thursday around 12:15 p.m. when they struck a southbound Chevrolet Cobalt.

TV5's Gino Vicci was informed that the victim killed in the Cobalt was 55-year-old Darrell Hall, of Owosso, and that he lived just a few blocks from the crash scene. Authorities said he was on his way to the grocery store to pick up a few items.

Hall's funeral will be held Wednesday.

One of the suspects fled the scene but was later found by police and arrested.
