ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The only survivor of a violent crash that killed three people Sunday night was driving without a license, 69 News has learned.

Tim Flores also has a history of traffic citations, including previous charges of driving with a suspended or revoked license, dating back five years, according to court records.

In April, Flores, 22, was cited for driving around a railroad crossing arm that was down at Auburn and Basin streets in Allentown. That charge is still pending, according to court records.

The accident happened Sunday night on East Susquehanna Street, less than a mile from Flores' home.

The driver of the other car, Chad Fluck, lost control and slammed into a tree. Fluck died, along with his brother, Kenny Marcks, and their cousin, Tom Fallstich.

Police have said both cars were driving around 70 miles an hour, twice the speed limit, on a two lane road.

Both cars were going the same direction. Police are investigating whether the drivers were racing each other.

69 News was unable to reach Flores for comment, but a friend said Monday that Fluck was attempting to pass Flores when he lost control of his car.

No charges have been filed in the case yet, and police have not commented on whether alcohol may have been involved.
