ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The man authorities say was responsible for Tampa Bay area hit-and-run crash that killed three women has turned himself in.

Authorities say 27-year-old Marquice Lamonz Anderson surrendered Monday morning after being identified as the driver Friday evening. He faces multiple charges, including vehicular homicide.

St. Petersburg police say Anderson was driving a rented Chrysler 200 the wrong way down a street early Thursday morning when he crashed into a Saturn with three female occupants.

Authorities say Anderson's girlfriend reported the Chrysler stolen after the crash at Anderson's request. She faces an accessory charge.
