Baltimore men charged with manslaughter after deadly street race

Two Baltimore men have been charged with manslaughter and a third is wanted in a deadly three-car street race last summer on Wabash Avenue.

The race ended in a fiery wreck that killed the 30-year-old passenger Keyona Thomas. On Tuesday, a Baltimore grand jury indicted Brandon Gross, 34, one driver, on charges of auto manslaughter. A second driver, Russell Edwards Jr., 33, was arrested last month on the charge. A third driver, Brian Scott, is wanted by police.

Online court records did not list attorneys for Gross and Edwards.

In the indictment for Gross, Baltimore Police Department Detective Christopher Izquierdo wrote that the driver’s licenses were revoked and suspended for Scott and Edwards; Gross possessed a learner’s permit.

The three drivers were speeding down Wabash Avenue in the early morning hours of Aug. 10, 2010, when one lost control and caused the three cars to crash in a chain reaction. A Chevrolet Cavalier, driven by Scott with Thomas as a passenger, burst into flames. Scott was hospitalized in critical condition; Thomas died at the hospital.
