(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Video of a deadly drag race on a Birmingham street has made its way on to YouTube. It happened yesterday (Sunday) just before 4:30 p.m. on Republic Boulevard in the Pratt City area.

Police said the driver of one of the vehicles lost control then struck and killed a person who was watching the race. The situation took an even deadlier turn after a man trying to help the injured pedestrian was shot and killed.
