POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Deputies have arrested a Pompano Beach man accused of causing a crash that killed an 80-year-old man.

According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, 28-year-old Maxx Bernstein turned himself in to deputies Sunday.

Bernstein faced a judge, Monday, where he was charged with vehicular homicide and reckless driving. He is currently being held on a $100,425 bond.
