A Baton Rouge man has been arrested for his alleged role in a drag-racing crash Saturday evening on North Lobdell Boulevard that resulted in the death of his brother and a bicyclist.
Baton Rouge police said Lattimore Brock, 57, of 3623 Geronimo St., and Christopher Brock, 56, of Baker, were drag racing in the 2100 block of North Lobdell Boulevard near Lobwood Drive around 5:30 p.m. when Christopher Brock lost control of his 2008 BMW 135I and struck the driver's side of Lattimore's 2006 Ford Mustang.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner has been contacted for two victims involved in an overturned vehicle on Lobdell, EMS reported.
The accident caused both vehicles to leave the roadway, coming to a stop after striking a wooden utility pole and a bicyclist — 24-year-old Deondrick Rudd, of Jeanerette — before coming to rest against a tree.
Christopher Brock and Rudd both died at the scene. BRPD spokesperson Sgt. Don Coppola Jr. said he understands the two Brocks to be brothers.
Lattimore Brock survived and was later booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on two counts of vehicular homicide and a count each of driving while intoxicated, drag racing, failure to maintain control and reckless driving.
