A 20-year-old man wanted in a deadly crash on Canyon Road in September has been arrested.
Brandon D. Fair surrendered himself to authorities and was booked into Pierce County Jail about 11:30 p.m. Monday, according to the online jail roster. He should make his first court appearance today.
Last week, Pierce County prosecutors charged Fair with vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and driving with a suspended or revoked license in the Sept. 20 crash that killed Clara Vallone, a well-liked junior and soccer player at Graham-Kapowsin High School.
Prosecutors alleged Fair was under the influence of marijuana, speeding and driving recklessly north on Canyon Road East when his car lost control and slammed into a power pole in the 13700 block.
Vallone, 16, was riding in the back and died of her injuries shortly after the crash. Another backseat passenger – a 16-year-old girl – was injured.
The two girls were defenders on the Graham-Kapowsin High School girls’ soccer team. They had been on their way to a game at Sparks Stadium.
A warrant had been issued for Fair’s arrest and Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers had offered a reward for information on his whereabouts.
Pierce County sheriff’s deputies booked Fair into jail. The circumstances of his arrest were not immediately known.
