NEW ORLEANS - The attorney for a man who crashed a Lamborghini into a flood wall on Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans, killing a passenger in the process, has surrendered himself to police, according to his attorney.

Jason Adams, a real estate broker and investor, will now face a charge of vehicular homicide in connection with the crash that took the life of 23-year-old Kristi Lynn Lirette just before midnight on May 4. Lirette was the passenger in the Lamborghini at the time of the wreck.
