Phillips said Young and another motorcyclist, Larry Wayne Stuart, 26, of 4736 Elmview -each with a teen-aged girl as a passenger- were drag racing north on Vickie. The officer said Young's cycle slammed into the right rear door of a car driven by David Lockler, 21, of 624 SW 59, who was making a left turn onto Woodview.
