Drag Racer Charged in Parade Deaths

SELMER, Tenn. (AP) -- A professional drag racer whose car plowed into a parade crowd last summer has surrendered to authorities.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says Troy Critchley faces multiple felony charges. Six people died and 22 were injured in the crash.

A judge has set a $35,000 bond for Critchley. The trial is scheduled for Nov. 3.

Critchley had been spinning the tires of his car to send up clouds of smoke when his car crashed at a charity event.
