State police said on May 8 around 8:20 p.m., the suspect, identified as Marcos Gomez, turned himself in at Troop H.
Gomez was charged with evading responsibility-injury/property damage, reckless driving, illegal operation of a motor vehicle without minimum insurance, failure to drive in a proper lane, following too closely, and improper use of registration or license.
According to the arrest warrant from state police, Gomez’s employer sent a statement to state police identifying Gomez as an employee. The statement said they recognized him from a picture that state police put on Facebook and that Gomez had told another employee that he was involved in a crash on April 23 and could not come to work.
He was released on a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court at the end of the month.
