Henry Michael Gevorgyan had been identified by the Los Angeles Police Department as the suspected driver who lost control of a modified Ford Mustang that plowed into a crowd of spectators during the illegal race early Thursday morning, leaving two people dead and one seriously injured.

The suspect contacted authorities Saturday afternoon, said Officer John Guzman of the LAPD's Valley Traffic Division.

At 7:44 p.m., Capt. John McMahon announced on Twitter that Gevorgyan had surrendered to police "a few minutes ago" at the Central Division station in downtown Los Angeles.

Detectives were en route to interview the suspected hit-and-run driver, Guzman said.

The deadly incident happened shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday in the 21400 block of Plummer Street (map), where Gevorgyan and another driver were allegedly racing before the crash.

Two men, both in their 20s, were killed in the collision. One died at the scene; the other was pronounced dead at a hospital in Northridge.

A third victim, a 21-year-old man, was hospitalized in serious but stable condition.
