— The brother of a Dunn man killed in a single-vehicle crash near Benson early Sunday morning will face charges in connection with the crash.

Charges for involuntary manslaughter and felony hit-and-run are pending against Medford Brian Anderson, 24, the brother of Randy Lee Anderson Jr., 30, who died at the scene.

The investigation showed that Brian Anderson was driving 75 mph in a 55 mph zone on SR 1104, lost control of the vehicle and overturned 2 1/2 times, landing in a field near the road on the vehicle’s passenger side about 1:30 a.m.,  Highway Patrol officials said.

Randy Anderson was ejected from the car and was not wearing a seatbelt, officials said. Brian Anderson and a passenger in the back seat both suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Highway Patrol officials said they are giving Brian Anderson the chance to surrender to authorities voluntarily.
