A suspect has turned himself in relation to a hit and run that killed a 21-year old from Madison County the weekend before last in Jackson.

The Jackson Police Department announced Thursday that Guy Wright, 32, surrendered himself to police on April 25. This came just a day after authorities released a description of the suspected vehicle involved in the incident.

Wright is charged with felony leaving the scene of an accident.

JPD said the accident occurred early Saturday the morning of April 21. They were investigating a fatal hit-and-run accident that occurred in the 5400 block of I-55N Frontage near Briarwood Dr. 

They said a 21-year-old white male was found in the roadway just after 2:33 a.m., unresponsive and with injuries consistent with a collision. 

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart identified the man, Zachary Spell, 21, of Gluckstadt, as the victim. 

Spell is the son of Melvin and Lara Spell of Gluckstadt and a 2015 graduate of Germantown High School where he played football.

He was currently attending Hinds Community College where he was studying Electro-Mechanical Technology. He was due to receive full certification in May.
