TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - An arrest warrant says a black Mustang that fatally hit a young mother and her infant daughter as they crossed a street in Florida was going 102 mph, then braked hard before impact.

The Tampa Bay Times obtained a copy of the report. Jessica Raubenolt and her daughter, 21-month-old Lillia, were struck on May 23, and died in the hospital.

Police arrested 18-year-old Cameron Herrin, and officials said he was the driver of the Mustang. They also arrested 17-year-old John Barrineau and said he was behind the wheel of another car.

Witnesses told police they saw the Mustang and the Altima racing.

Court documents now say that electronic evidence taken from the Mustang during a police search showed that the car hit 102 mph before Cameron Herrin braked.
