ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Kirtland Air Force base confirms that four airmen were involved in the possible street racing crash on Saturday night.


The car had been driving north on Louisana near Gibson and tried to pass another car in the middle turn lane when they hit and killed a woman and then crashed into an apartment building.

There were four people in the car. Three of them were in critical condition on Saturday night, but APD says they're now in stable condition. The driver was taken into custody after the accident.

Police said they were going to perform a blood test on the driver to determine if anything was in their system.

Neighbors say street racing isn't very rare on that stretch of road.

The names of those involved in the crash have not been released yet.
