Police were not immediately saying whether the drivers of two cars speeding side-by-side on Friday afternoon in St. Paul were racing. What's known is that one vehicle crashed and flipped and three in that car suffered injuries, as did the driver of the other car, the Associated Press reports.

The two cars were speeding east in both lanes on Minnehaha Avenue between Flandrau and Kennard streets when one of the cars lost control and went airborne, one person was ejected, and the car landed on its roof, the Star Tribune reports.

The conditions of the injured were not immediately known Friday night.

It wasn't clear if the cars contacted each other, the Pioneer Press reports. Neighbors say there was little doubt that the cars were drag-racing, the Pioneer Press says.
