The man accused of causing a crash in Roswell that killed two Cobb County brothers last month surrendered to Fulton County authorities Monday afternoon.

Charles Talmadge Pitts turned himself in just days after being charged in the crash that killed James Pratt, 18, and Joseph Pratt, 14. Pitts faces two counts of vehicular homicide and failure to yield from a stop sign in the April 24 crash on Ga. 92 at West Road.

The brothers attended Lassiter High School and were on their way to a dentist appointment when police say their car crashed into a special-needs bus.

Police said their BMW T-boned the bus carrying four special-needs students from Roswell High School, Channel 2 Action News reported.
