A 20-year-old Southfield man was arraigned Thursday on several charges after being identified as the driver in a crash that killed two women. 

Armond Humes is charged with two counts of operating while intoxicated causing death and two counts of failure to stop at the scene of an accident— when at fault— resulting in death. 

Southfield police say Humes was driving a 2018 Chrysler 300 westbound on the Northwestern Highway Service Drive, getting onto southbound Berg Road at about 6:10 a.m. when the crash happened.

Humes, police say, was unable to make the turn and instead crashed into a tree. After the crash, he reportedly "fled the scene on foot" before being arrested. 

Front seat passenger Marcia Gingles, a 21-year-old female, and Tyana Bryant, a 20-year-old female, both from Southfield, died in the crash. 

Humes is being held on $1 million bond. 

His probable cause hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. July 25 and his preliminary exam will be at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 1.
