PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A judge has ordered a second man to stand trial in a triple-fatal crash that authorities said occurred as cars were drag racing in northeast Philadelphia a year ago.

Twenty-year-old Ryan Farrell had a preliminary hearing last month with 20-year-old Christopher Bloomfield in the July 2015 crash that killed 17-year-old Sabrina Rhoads, 17-year-old Yvette Gonzalez and 20-year-old Felipe Hernandez.

Bloomfield was held for trial, but a decision on Farrell was delayed after his attorney argued that there was no precedent for charging a driver in a drag racing crash if the driver didn’t hit the other vehicle.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/2aIjXZB ) reports that Farrell was held for trial Monday on vehicular homicide and involuntary manslaughter charges.
