The Las Vegas Metropolitan Polices have made an arrest stemming from a crash that killed a man and a woman more than two weeks ago.

Witnesses informed police that a second car was racing the Corvette at the time of the accident. Police were able to review footage from surveillance cameras showing a Dodge Charger zipping past the Corvette at the moment before it collided with another vehicle.

The Charger and driver, Jovani Monarrez-Tavizon, were discovered by LVMPD on Thursday morning, and Monarrez-Tavizon is facing felony charges of reckless driving that resulted in serious bodily injury or death.

On Tuesday, Monarrez-Tavizon made his initial appearance in court. He was subsequently released on bail and came before the court. The next court date is scheduled for July.
