A driver was killed and his passenger injured Monday morning in a rollover crash in Lancaster, possibly due to street racing.
The crash occurred at 1:27 a.m. on 20th Street West and Avenue H, said Lt. Michael Prottung of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
The vehicle was northbound on 20th Street West when the road turned from pavement to dirt and the driver apparently lost control, Prottung said.
The man driving the car was pronounced dead at the scene, he said. Paramedics took the passenger to a hospital with injuries not believed life-threatening. The passenger’s age and gender were not available.
A news videographer at the scene said there were witness reports that the two vehicles were racing at the time of the crash. Prottung said he was not able to confirm that report.
