15-year-old Javier Hunter and 15-year-old Savyion Farley have been identified as the middle-school students killed in a possible street racing crash in southwest Houston Wednesday morning.
Another person was arrested at the scene. It is unclear if that person is a student. Police say the 16-year-old driver of a black SUV initially stopped, but appears to have tried to leave the scene. He is now in custody. It will be up to the district attorney to decide if criminal charges will be filed.

The wreck happened just after 2 a.m. on West Fuqua near Hiram Clarke.
Police say they saw two SUVs speeding eastbound on West Fuqua. As an officer pulled out to stop the vehicles, one SUV clipped the other, sending it into a school zone sign and then a median. The SUV went airborne and slammed into a tree. The impact was so strong, it knocked down the tree. The driver and the passenger, both 8th graders, were killed. The driver’s aunt owns the blue SUV that the driver and passenger were inside. source
According to the victim’s aunt, a 16-year-old friend called her nephew and said they should go racing, so he took her keys.
“Parents, double check your kids when they ask you for your keys. He’s only 15 years old. I should have seen the warning signs, but I didn’t. I usually catch him, but I didn’t catch him this morning. The result of that took his life,” the victim’s aunt said.
