Officials released photos of the black mustang they believe drove away from the scene after the crash, returned to the area and left a second time. Police originally thought the second vehicle was red.

The cash occurred on Dec. 10 in the 1700 block of West Ball Road.

One of the vehicles involved in an apparent street race crashed into the patio of an apartment and was engulfed in flames.

Two people inside the vehicle were killed and have only been identified as being 19 years old.

Investigators believe the second vehicle involved then left the area.
