Last week, after an intensive Crash Team investigation, a Baltimore County Grand Jury indicted 29-year-old Daniel Earl Lawrence of the 400 block of Riverside Drive in connection with the crash.

He was taken into custody just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday night and is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The indictment charges Lawrence with failure to immediately stop vehicle at scene of accident involving death, failure to immediately return and remain at scene of accident involving death, and failure to stop at scene of accident resulting in death.
