Drag racing leaves one 20-year-old dead and two men are behind bars.

Memphis police say Christopher Loftis, 20, was racing two other drivers on Air Park Road Saturday night. The affidavit says Ontario Brown, 21, slammed into the other driver Jessie Moore, 21.

Moore was taken in critical condition to the Med where he later died.

Police arrested both Loftis and Brown, charging them with Vehicular Homicide, Drag Racing and Reckless Driving. Brown is additionally charged with Driving While License S/R/C and Violation of Financial Law.

Loftis told police they were going approximately 75 miles per hour in a 30 mile zone.

Both Loftis and Brown are due in court Monday morning.
