WASHINGTON — A Warrenton, Virginia, man faces several charges, including involuntary manslaughter, after fleeing the scene of a fatal, single-vehicle crash on Monday. Alcohol and speed may have contributed to the crash, police said.

A back seat passenger died after being ejected from the car. Jose Nelvin Romero Maldonado, 38, of Warrenton, was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene of the crash. The front seat passenger, a 30-year-old man also from Warrenton, survived the crash with minor injuries, police said. He was treated at the hospital and released.
