SIOUX FALLS, SD -
An 18-year-old man is in the hospital after an early-morning crash on Cliff Avenue in Sioux Falls.
Police say two cars were street racing at speeds higher than 60 miles per hour north on Cliff Avenue just after midnight. That's when the driver of a Chevy Cavalier lost control and hit a power pole near Avera McKennan hospital.
The man was pinned inside his car, but rescue crews did get him out and took him to Avera-McKennan. Police say his injuries are life-threatening.
Police are not releasing the name of the victim.
The driver of the other car was not hurt, but was ticketed for racing. Police say alcohol was not involved in the crash.
