A jury has convicted a driver in a drag-racing accident that killed four bystanders in Gary.Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Castillo was found guilty on four counts of reckless homicide and six counts of criminal recklessness.

Prosecutors say two years ago Castillo was driving about 100 miles per hour when his car collided with another car making a turn at an intersection.

Castillo's car flew into the air and came down into a crowd in an empty lot, crushing the victims that included a 6-year-old boy.
