ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Police in Allentown are investigating whether two cars may have been racing before a crash that killed three people in one vehicle.
Capt. Daryl Hendricks says the drivers knew each other and that both vehicles were traveling at a high rate of speed at the time of Sunday night’s accident. The Lehigh County coroner’s office has identified the deceased as 23-year-old Chad A. Fluck, who was driving; and his passengers, 46-year-old Thomas Fallstich and 35-year-old Kenneth Marcks.
Hendricks says both vehicles crashed, but that they didn’t hit each other.
The driver of the second vehicle, 22-year-old Timothy Flores, was released from a hospital Monday. Hendricks says Flores is cooperating with police and hasn’t been charged.
An accident reconstruction team is investigating the crash. Toxicology tests could take several weeks.
