Aurora, Colo. (AP) - Two men have been arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide after an alleged street race in suburban Denver that police say led to a fatal collision.

Aurora Police arrested 34-year-old Benny Sitinjak and 28-year-old Jose Hernandez Castellanos late Tuesday.

Authorities say the men were driving separate cars at speeds of more than 75 mph Tuesday when Sitinjak's SUV struck a third vehicle, killing the driver.

The victim's name hasn't been released.

Police have said the third driver was pinned in his car while Sitinjak and Hernandez stood arguing when officers arrived.

Both suspects are being held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
