An 11th grader at Paschal High School was killed Tuesday when he lost control of his car and hit a tree during a street race, Fort Worth police said.
The driver, who was identified by the Fort Worth Medical Examiner as Nicholas Delgadillo, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The one-car wreck occurred just after 1 p.m. in the 2900 block of McCart Avenue while students were out for lunch.
Troy Langston, Paschal’s principal, said in an email to Paschal parents, students and alumni that arrangements have been made for counselors to be available for all students and staff.
Fort Worth police are investigating.
