Man Charged In Fatal Street Race

Associated Press - November 19, 2014 8:32 am

The last of five defendants in the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been sentenced.

A 19-year-old Wichita man is charged with involuntary manslaughter and other crimes after a street race killed another driver.

Darbin Matthew Tate made his first appearance Tuesday on charges stemming from a street race last Friday that killed 23-year-old Jordan Farber. Prosecutors say cars driven by Tate and Farber bumped during the chase, causing Farber’s car to crash into trees and catch fire.

Farber’s 18-year-old girlfriend escaped before the fire started. Farber was found dead in the wreckage.

Tate also is charged with aggravated battery, driving on a suspended license, drag racing or exhibition of speed and leaving the scene of an accident.

It was not immediately clear if Tate has an attorney.
