JONESBORO, Ark. -- A drag racing wreck on Tuesday night sent on Jonesboro man to an area hospital.
Twenty-year-old Benjamin Colvin and 19-year-old Scotty Shannon were drag racing, according to the Jonesboro Police Department, in the alley behind the Lowe's store in east Jonesboro at approximately 8 p.m.
Colvin, driving a white Chevrolet Blazer, couldn't make the turn at the end of the alley and hit a guard rail at a high rate of speed. Investigators do not believe that Colvin attempted to use his brakes. They tell KAIT that there were no skid marks at the scene of the accident.
