A Laurel man who was charged months ago with killing a pedestrian during an apparent car race on Route 198 in August turned himself in yesterday, Anne Arundel County police said.

Police had been seeking Richard McHale II, 23, of the 9300 block of Steeple Court in the incident Aug. 10 near Red Clay Road.

Police said McHale's white Acura Integra struck and killed Chelliah Johnson, 53, of Riverdale as the victim was crossing the six-lane state highway. Witnesses said the white Acura had been racing a blue one.
