Alicia Street known for drag racing according to neighbors

Alicia is what Hollywood Street turns into between Poplar and Union.

Despite the curves in this street, neighbors said drag racers are a big concern.

A dangerous game that led to that big mess.    

Witnesses said two teenagers admitted they were racing their Toyota Corollas when one of them lost control.

His car went air-borne, crashed into the corner of L.V. Schmidt's house, then hit a third Toyota Corolla parked in a driveway next door.

Schmidt said he is accustomed to the noise caused by a pot-hole out front. But not this.

"And when trucks come through they make a nice large "plop" and I always hear it -- and that "plop" last night was different, I could tell," Schmidt said.

The two teens involved in last night's wreck were questioned on the scene.

Amazingly, no one was hurt.

Neighbors are afraid it's only a matter of time before someone is hurt or killed.
