Authorities are asking for help in locating a Philadelphia man accused in the October drunken-driving death of a Camden County woman.
Kenney Bellegarde, 21, of the 6600 block of Hollis Street, is charged with vehicular homicide and two counts of assault by auto, authorities said.
Bellegarde allegedly was driving his green Saturn around 10 p.m. Oct. 1 on Route 30 and was swerving into oncoming traffic when he crashed his car into a Dodge at Route 73 in Waterford Township.
Vanessa Tomlin, 22, of Waterford, a passenger in the Dodge was taken to Cooper University Hospital and pronounced dead early the following morning.
Amanda Lewis, the driver of the Dodge and Tomlin's aunt, was badly injured. A passenger in the Saturn, Davins Bataille, also was seriously injured.
Police alleged that Bellegarde had been at a wedding before the crash and admitted drinking at the reception. Charges were filed Oct. 25 after toxicology tests found that his blood-alcohol level was nearly double the legal definition of drunken driving. Police have been unable to locate Bellegarde since the charges were filed.
Tomlin's family has offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to Bellegarde's arrest. The Citizens' Crime Commission has contributed an additional $1,000 to the reward. U.S. marshals are also looking for Bellegarde and say they think he is still in the Philadelphia area.
People with information are being urged to contact their local police department or call 911. Bellegarde is nationally registered as a fugitive, and any law enforcement organization will assist in his capture.
For an anonymous caller to be eligible to receive the reward, information must be called in to the Crime Commission Tipline, 215-546-8477 or 877-345-8477, where the caller will receive a code number from the operator.
