HINESVILLE, Ga. — Authorities say a 30-year-old man is facing charges of DUI and drag racing after plowing into a house early Tuesday morning.

WTOC-TV reports Garvari Dixon-Lewis, of Hinesville, was racing a second driver — identified as Howard Craig — when he tried rounding a curve, lost control of the vehicle and crashed through the living room of a house.

There were no reported injuries. Authorities say Craig was also cited for drag racing in the Christmas morning crash.

Hinesville is about 40 miles southwest of Savannah in Liberty County.

What was the Cause of this Bubba Testosterone challenge

The car, the alcohol or a combination of Testosterones and the idiots behind the wheel?

Reckless Driving - not "drag racing"

Dear Augusta,
Drag racing is a sanctioned sport, with rules rewarding actual skill and punishing cheaters. I wish that this sort of juvenile idiocy was not falsely equated with that sport.
