(Newser) – The man accused of being behind the wheel of a souped-up Ford Mustang in a deadly street-race crash last week has turned himself in, police in Los Angeles say. Two people were killed and one person was critically injured when the Mustang went out of control and plowed into a crowd at the illegal race in the Chatsworth area of the city early Thursday morning, reports KTLA. The LAPD says 21-year-old Henry Michael Gevorgyan, who allegedly fled the scene after the deadly crash, turned himself in on Saturday night. He could face charges including hit-and-run, vehicular manslaughter, and potentially murder, according to police, who are still seeking the driver of the other vehicle involved in the race, NBC reports.
