Two Owosso men have been formally charged for the Thanksgiving day death of another Owosso man.

Kevin Hart, 19, and Charles Mitts, 20, were each arraigned on Friday with one count of reckless driving, causing death.

An eyewitness told investigators that Hart and Mitts were drag racing each other in their pickup trucks northbound on Shiawassee Street in Owosso. A car driven by 55-year-old Darrell Hall of Owosso turned into their path.

The truck driven by Hart slammed into the car, killing Hall. Hart was arrested at the scene. Mitts fled, but was later found at his home and arrested.

Each remains in jail on $20,000 bond.

    John, are you saying that kids never drag raced illegally before there were video games? Give me a break.

    I think the video games now are too realistic and rediculous too but people (especially young and dumb people) have been drag racing since the chariots in ancient Rome...nothing new. 3 family ruined.

    probably thought the were playing xbox 360 games and didnt realize someone could really die from such bad decision making. Those video games are horrible i cant stand any of them. kids fail to remember driving is a privelege not a given right. I hope they never drive ever again after this.
