LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV)- The celebration of the new year spilled over onto the streets of Longview this morning with a drag racing accident that closed a roadway for half the day.

Police say two drivers were apparently racing down Hollybrook Drive around 4:30 A.M. One of the drivers lost control and went of the road way, crashing through a power utility pole, and knocked out power in the area. Hollybrook Drive was closed to traffic for more than12 hours while repairs were made.

Amazingly neither driver was injured. Police have not released what charges the drivers will face.
