A 19-year-old Aurora man wanted on a $250,000 arrest warrant, who is suspected in a March 31 one-car crash that killed a 37-year-old Aurora man, has turned himself in to police.

Kendrick Scott, of the 2000 block of Rosehall Lane, turned himself in just after noon Friday, Aurora police spokesman Dan Ferrelli said.

Scott was charged with one count of reckless homicide and driving 35 mph or more over the posted 45 mph speed limit in a complaint filed Tuesday evening with the warrant.

According to the felony complaint, Scott "operated a motor vehicle in a reckless manner, with hydrocodone in his system, in the dark, operating in excess of 35 mph over the posted speed limit on Ogden Avenue in Aurora."

LaRenzo I. Bryant, of the 1000 block of Pheasant Run Lane, Aurora, was pronounced dead at the scene in the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Long Grove Drive according to Aurora police.

Officials said Scott was driving a 2013 Buick Regal west on Ogden Avenue with a 19-year-old woman in the car when it struck Bryant, who was on foot, about 11:10 p.m. It was unclear whether Scott was in the crosswalk when he was hit.
