Fugitive Driver in Deadly Accident Turns Himself in After Two Weeks
BRANDYWINE, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — The man who fled the scene of a single-car accident in Brandywine that claimed the life of a 23-year-old man has turned himself in after two weeks on the run.
Bryant Lewis of Clinton surrendered to the Department of Corrections Thursday morning, according to Prince George’s County Police.
Lewis, 23, was behind the wheel of a stolen car when it ran off the road and crashed into a utility pole on McKendree Road shortly before 11 p.m. on July 17. Brendan Munnerlyn of Waldorf was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. A second passenger was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police say speed appears to have been a factor in the accident and that the driver was seen running from the car after the crash.
Lewis is facing multiple charges related to the stolen car and fleeing the scene of the accident.
