1 of 2 men charged in deadly street racing crash bound over for trial

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- One of the men accused of illegal drag racing that resulted in a deadly crash in Milwaukee earlier this month is bound over for trial.

Thirty-year-old James Hinton appeared virtually for his preliminary hearing Thursday, Aug. 19.

Prosecutors say both Hinton and James Malone were street racing near 60th and Hampton back on Aug. 7, when Malone's car hit a third vehicle, killing two men.

Hinton faces three charges, including first degree reckless injury.

On Thursday, a motion to dismiss those charges was denied.

Hinton has a bail hearing set for Wednesday, Aug. 25.

James Malone was injured in the crash. He has not yet made his first court appearance.
