The survivor of a deadly accident last week, is still in critical condition at a hospital.

The crash happened just before 6 p.m Wednesday on U.S 33, north of County Road 50.

The vehicle crossed the center line and flipped several times as it hit the ditch.

Mario Reyes, 25, died in the crash.

His passenger, Vincente Martinez, 23, was airlifted to a hospital in Fort Wayne for serious head injuries.

According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, a witness told dispatchers that the two cars were racing.

But, Elkhart County police haven't confirmed that information.
