LAFAYETTE - Lafayette police say a 23-year-old man suspected of driving drunk and causing a collision that killed a 2-year-old last week has surrendered to authorities.

Jamuse Broussard, of Lafayette, has been booked Tuesday with vehicular homicide in the Jan. 16 crash in which Kylan Jackson was severely injured.

The toddler died from his injuries in a Baton Rouge hospital on Jan. 17.

Police say Broussard was driving an SUV that hit a pickup in which the 2-year-old was a passenger.

Broussard also has been booked with OWI, driving under suspension, and failure to yield while turning left.
