CHICAGO -- A car rolled over and crashed into a house's front porch, killing at least one person and injuring two others.

Neighbors at 116th and Torrence say two cars were drag racing in the city's South Deering neighborhood.

The 19-year-old driver was southbound when he lost control.  His car hit the curb, then a fire hydrant, then a fence, before hitting the porch.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Relatives have identified him as Devon Steele.

They say he and a group of friends  were on their way home from a concert last night last night.

The crash left the victims pinned inside the vehicle. Emergency crews had to tear it open to get them out.

The friends remain in the hospital in critical condition.

Chicago Police Department have not named a cause for the crash,  but people who live in the area say it's probably drag racing.

The driver of a second car did not stick around after the crash.
