    ORMOND BEACH, Fla. - Officials with the Ormond Beach Police Department are seeking the public's assistance in tracking down a second vehicle involved in a street race that resulted in a fatal crash.

    Police said a 24-year-old man was racing another vehicle in his Camaro when he fatally struck 73-year-old Mary Spanos' SUV as he was making a left-hand turn on Nova Road from Shadow Lakes Road.
