A man wanted by police for a hit-and-run in Durham that killed a senior citizen last week has turned himself into authorities.

Investigators have charged 24-year-old Quinton Lester with one count of involuntary manslaughter and with hit and run.

Police say he was driving a car that sped through a red light on South Driver Street March 26 and hit another car. The force of the crash sent that other car into a third car, which was forced into a building.

Seventy-six year-old Weldon Williams died from his injuries after the crash.

The other driver, 66-year-old Louise Shines, remains hospitalized.
