A man accused of being high when he fatally struck a 22-year-old woman with a car earlier this month in north suburban Volo has surrendered to police.

Investigators identified 23-year-old Brandon A. Stang as the driver of the 2008 Ford Mustang that hit 22-year-old Stephanie V. Kostenko at 2:38 a.m. May 5 on Route 12 near Route 120, according to a statement from the Lake County sheriff’s office. Kostenko, who lived in Lake Zurich, was dead at the scene.

An arrest warrant was issued for Stang Thursday, charging him with a felony count of aggravated driving under the influence of cannabis causing death, the sheriff’s office said. He turned himself in to police Friday morning.

Stang, who lives in the 400 block of North Main Street in Wauconda, is being held at the Lake County Jail on $100,000 bail, the sheriff’s office said.
