The Harris County authorities have video of the accident that shows a car crashing into a truck. The second car in the race just passes by in the video.

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said that the two people were watching the race. He, along with his staff, believe Pace was the driver of a red Camaro that was damaged from the crash.

Pace was reportedly not hurt in the crash.

The authorities also expect to charge the second driver in the illegal street racing incident. Gonzalez believes that the person will turn themselves in.

Pace could face up to two to 20 years if he’s convicted.

“If you are participating in a race and someone dies or gets seriously hurt, that is a second-degree felony,” Harris County Assistant District Attorney Sean Teare said. “Period. You don’t have to be the striking car. Mr. Pace was the striking car. The other individual was not, but he will be facing the same penalty range.”
