The teenager, Matthew Cole Austin, was allegedly street racing on Farm Road 1960 last October when deputies said he lost control of his vehicle, striking and killing a 74-year-old woman who was driving the other way.

Another teenage driver swerved out of the way and skidded into oncoming traffic.

A driver and passenger in another vehicle were also killed.
