Maj. Saba Coleman said four people were taken into custody at the crash scene. So far, Boynes is the only one who has been charged.
After being taken into custody, Boynes was transported to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he was placed under an $85,000 bail.
correction: Initially, Montgomery police identified the suspect as Quiaeem Boines. His name has since been updated with the correct spelling of Quikeem Boynes.
