Two Jerusalem teens were being held in custody Wednesday for their alleged involvement in an illegal drag race that killed a 35-year-old motorcyclist from Silwan.

During Tuesday night's incident, one of the two cars tried to over slammed into the motorbike while attempting an overtaking maneuver on the Uzi Narkiss Bridge, in the capital's French Hill neighborhood.

The driver of one of the cars went into shock and checked himself into a hospital, while the other driver fled the scene.

The latter was caught by police late Wednesday morning.
