A man and a woman were hospitalized early Sunday morning after they were hit by a car involved in drag racing on Tech Drive.

Jeremiah Ramirez, 18, of Levelland was arrested on two charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Bonds totaled $40,000.

Ramirez was released from custody Monday.

The injured man, Chad Wesley Smith, confronted two drivers and told them they couldn’t drag race. 

At that time, one man in a car accelerated, swerved and hit the man and woman. He then fled the scene, police said.
