KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Two Killeen teenagers have been indicted in connection with a street-racing crash that killed a man and a woman.

Tyrone Floyd Moore, 18, and Alexis Jillian Woods, 17, were named in separate indictments Wednesday charging racing on a highway causing death.

The two were arrested in December after charges were filed, but were later released on bond.

Killeen police rearrested Woods after the indictment was handed up Wednesday.

Francine Wimbush, 66, of Killeen and Michael Keith Lockett, 60 of Chicago, died at around 12:15 p.m. Nov. 15 in the 5400 block of Trimmier Road when the Ford Taurus Lockett was driving was struck broadside by a Chevrolet Camaro as the Ford was attempting to turn onto Nichols Circle, police said at the time of the crash.

Wimbush and Lockett both died at the scene and the Taurus ended up on its side against a roadside fence.

There were four students inside the Camaro.

Two of them were taken to a local hospital with what police described as non-life-threatening injuries.

A Dodge Charger that evidently was the second of the two cars that were racing was found in a parking lot about 1,000 yards from the accident scene.

The accident occurred about midway between Ellison High School and the Pathways Academic Campus.
