LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- An apparent afternoon street race has put one East Texan in the hospital.

DPS officials say two men were racing at high speeds on County Road 2116 near Pittsburg, when one of the men lost control, went off the road, and flipped several times.

That driver is hospitalized, while the second driver was arrested for felony racing on a highway causing bodily injury. The other driver will face a lesser charge after he gets out of the hospital.
