ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities say a St. Louis man was street racing before a deadly crash.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 22-year-old Traveon Randell was charged last month with first-degree involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action in the death of 55-year-old William Moore.

Charges said Randell was racing two others in February when he lost control, struck a vehicle with two women inside and collided with Moore’s car. The crash was captured on surveillance video.

Moore was pronounced dead at a hospital. The driver of one of the vehicles Randell was racing also was treated at a hospital.

A St. Louis judge denied bail for Randell, whose criminal history includes convictions of unlawful use of a weapon, auto theft and misdemeanor resisting arrest.

No attorney is listed for Randell in online court records.
