Last Thursday in Los Angeles, the driver of a silver Ford Mustang allegedly killed two spectators in an illegal street race when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a crowd. As of Saturday night, the Mustang driver is in police custody, according to CNN, after he turned himself in to the authorities.
His opponent in the race is still being searched for.
The Mustang driver, Henry Gevorgyan, and his opponent were engaged in a street race in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Chatsworth in the early hours of Thursday morning. After his car spun, killing two people and injuring a third before crashing into a street pole, Gevorgyan and the other driver fled the scene.
But Saturday night, after local law enforcement had plastered the Mustang driver’s name and photo across various social networking pages, Gevorgyan turned himself in. He is being held on charges of murder, with bail set at $2 million.
While police have yet to apprehend the other driver in Thursday morning’s illegal street race, the crowd of onlookers was sizable enough that officials remain confident.
