Two Hampton Bays men face misdemeanor charges after a drag racing crash that sent one driver and two passengers to local hospitals.
Southampton Town Police said Erick Jimenez, 18, and Esteban Vazquez, 20, were racing eastbound on School Street near Trail Road in Hampton Bays Friday night when Jimenez lost control of his 1999 Hyundai Accent, then struck a fence and a tree before stopping a few feet from a house.
Vazquez, who drove a 1996 Nissan Altima, was not injured.
Both men face misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment, unauthorized drag racing, third-degree assault and reckless driving. Vazquez also faces a charge of driving while impaired by drugs.
