    A Massachusetts man wanted in a fatal rollover that killed a Quincy teen has turned himself in to police.

    Christopher Murch, 22, of Quincy, faces multiple charges, including motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation, in connection with the fatal crash that happened on Aug. 7.

    Police say Murch was driving on Palmer Street with 18-year-old Allan Dunne, of Quincy, and one other person when the car hit two utility poles, a fence and two parked vehicles. The car then rolled over, killing Dunne. 

    Police said Murch initially left the scene of the crash and was found at his home.
