Deadly Crash on Rio Grande Street

A 20 year old man continues to fight for his life at the hospital after a deadly crash late Christmas Night.

Amarillo Police say an 18 year old man riding in the car died at the scene.

It happened around 11:30pm in the 4000 Block of Rio Grande.

Officers say as the driver sped west, he lost control of the car. It left the road, and hit a tree, severing the car in two.

Neither man had on a seatbelt, and Police say it looks like alcohol played a roll in the crash.
