LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – The man who Lincoln Police say killed two women and injured 20 people in a Memorial Weekend crash turned himself in Tuesday.

Eighteen-year-old Kyvell Stark of Omaha was arraigned in Lancaster County on two counts of manslaughter and two counts of driving under the influence with serious bodily injuries.

A judge set his bond at $50,000.

Lincoln Police Chief Teresa Ewins said Stark was travelling close to 90 mph on O Street moments before the collision. The speed limit is 40 mph. The crash report states he also tested positive for marijuana.

LPD said Emily Siebenhor, 20, and Edith Hermosillo, 22, were killed in the collision that took place at 52nd and O Street around 10:45 p.m. on Sunday, May 29. Two of the 20 people injured remain in the hospital.

According to police, Stark was in a Ford Taurus speeding westbound on O Street when it struck a Toyota Corolla that was turning.

Police said Siebenhor was driving the Corolla and Hermosillo was a passenger in the vehicle.

LPD said after the initial impact, both vehicles went into a crowd of people who were gathered for a cruise event. The Ford initially rolled over onto its top, pinning two victims. Bystanders worked to move the car off the victims.
