THOMASVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police say a North Carolina man has turned himself in after his involvement in a wreck in which a teenager was killed.

Thomasville police told local media outlets that 21-year-old Luis Genaro Reyes Rodriguez was wanted on charges stemming from a fatal crash on Dec. 10. He turned himself in to police on Wednesday.

Police pointed to speed and alcohol and contributing factors in the crash.

According to police, officers answering a call found two vehicles racing. One of them crashed and the other left before police arrived.

Authorities say 16-year-old Marco Antonio Escamilla died at the scene. Three others were taken to a hospital where they were treated for their injuries and released.

Rodriguez is jailed under a $250,000 bond. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
