According to Dragzine.com, a 23-year-old drag racer was killed, while another was injured late Thursday evening in a racing accident in Dallas, Texas. Blake Williams was dead on the scene in the two-car accident.

The Burleson, Texas native, who was 23-years-old, was reportedly racing alongside a Ford Mustang at Yello Belly Dragstrip in Grand Prairie. The driver lost control of their vehicle near the finish line, striking Williams’ car and then coming to a stop off the track.

Williams struck a tree and, according to the publication, caused an explosion upon impact. He was ejected from the vehicle.

“The Mustang slid a little bit and then you see him veer over into the lane of the other car,” Allen Roberson Jr. told Fox 4 News. “You see a cloud of smoke and a quick explosion.”

The Mustang driver is expected to recover. The incident happened at 11:30 pm CST and the track was closed as of daybreak as the authorities did their investigation.

There has been a GoFundMe account that has been established to assist Williams’ girlfriend and his young child. As of this time, there were $5,270 of their $20K goal.

According to Fox4, he has a wife and two young children. They were at the track and witnessed the accident. There was also a Facebook Live of the crash, too.
