A 20-year-old Dayton man surrendered to Howard County police Tuesday night on charges of vehicular manslaughter in a Nov. 28 accident, police said.

Police said Justin Dean Wilson was traveling northbound on Route 32 near Burntwoods Road in Glenelg about 6: 55 a.m. when his 1996 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck crossed double yellow lines. Wilson's truck struck a southbound 1993 Toyota Camry, said Sgt. Morris Carroll, a Howard County police spokesman.

The driver of the Camry, Mary Lou Shumaker, 51, of the 800 block of Route 97, died at the scene.

Wilson's blood-alcohol level was 0.14, police said. The legal limit is 0.10. Officials issued a warrant for Wilson, of the 13900 block of Triadelphia Mill Road, on July 12. "Once he received the warrant, he turned himself in," said Carroll.

Wilson was released on an unsecured $25,000 bond. Police said Howard County has two to six cases of vehicular manslaughter each year.
