UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WJZ) — The driver in a fatal Bowie crash that killed five children and one man has turned herself in, police said.
Dominique Taylor turned herself in Wednesday after police worked with Taylor’s attorney to arrange for Taylor to turn herself in.
Taylor was wanted on an indictment for manslaughter by auto issued Tuesday. She is charged with six counts of manslaughter and six counts of negligent homicide by motor vehicle or vessel under the influence of alcohol per se.
The charges were placed after a wreck in February that resulted in the death of five children and a man.
