ORLANDO, Florida -- August 20, 2012

Police have arrested a 22-year-old central Florida man they say was involved in a street-racing crash that injured several people.

Ronald Lastra faces numerous charges, including leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving that caused injuries and unlawful racing. The crash happened early Sunday morning near Orlando International Airport. Lastra was arrested Sunday night.

Orlando police say Lastra crashed into five other vehicles and pedestrians. Two people -- a 17-year-old and a 28-year-old man -- were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center in critical condition. Other pedestrians were injured and police say they sought medical attention on their own.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Lastra.
