    A driver who left the scene of a deadly crash in Prince George's County last month is now in custody.

    Authorities say that 21-year-old Daron Britt has been arrested in the District of Columbia on a gun charge. Prince George's County Police said they have a warrant on file charging Britt with manslaughter.
    Police say Britt was driving a SUV when it crashed into a tree on Suitland Road in the early morning hours of February 19.
    18-year-old Tyesha Williams was ejected from the vehicle and died on the scene.
    The arrest has given Williams' family a little bit of closure, but it won’t bring back their loved one.
     "To leave people on the scene with a wreck like that ... And don’t know what the outcome. It’s unfortunate my granddaughter died in this tragedy,” Joan Mainor, the victim’s grandmother, told News4's Darcy Spencer.
