Two men have been arrested in connection with a fatal crash linked to drag racing in Worcester earlier this month, police said Friday.
Mifoud Faris, 27, and Fares Shikh-Omar, 20, both of Worcester, were arrested Friday following an investigation into a fatal crash which occurred on Oct. 10 on Goldsberry Street in the city, Worcester police said.
An investigation by the Worcester Police Department's crash reconstruction unit determined it's likely that Faris and Shikh-Omar were drag racing prior to the crash, officials said.
Faris was charged with motor vehicle homicide, operating to endanger, drag racing, speed greater than reasonable, marked lanes violation and several other motor vehicle charges, officials said. Shikh-Omar was charged with motor vehicle homicide, operating to endanger, drag racing and speed greater than reasonable.
