LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Southern California man has been charged with second-degree murder for a freeway crash that killed three people and critically injured others.

Prosecutors who filed charges on Tuesday contend that 35-year-old Dealio Lockhart of Whittier was racing his Dodger Challenger against another driver on Interstate 5 in Commerce when he went out of control shortly after midnight Saturday.

One racing car hit a UPS truck that flew over the center divider and sheered the top off another car.

The UPS driver and two college students returning from Disneyland were killed in the fiery crash.

Four people were hurt, including two who remain hospitalized in critical condition.

Lockhart also is charged with reckless driving and remains jailed.

The second racer hasn’t been caught.
