Police are searching for an accused drunken driver who was involved in a traffic accident last month that killed a 53-year-old man.
Daryl Larmar Brooks, 41, was indicted by a grand jury Monday on charges of second-degree murder, felony death by motor vehicle, felony serious injury by vehicle and driving while his license was revoked, police spokeswoman Kammie Michael reported Wednesday.
Investigators had already charged Brooks with driving while impaired after the March 11 accident on Fayetteville Road near Cook Road.
Brooks was driving south on Fayetteville Road just before 8 p.m. when he crashed into the back of a car driven by Kelwin Biggs of Durham. The force of the impact caused Biggs’ car to collide with an oncoming vehicle in the northbound lane of Fayetteville Road.

Biggs died at the scene. Emergency workers transported Brooks and the driver of the car in the northbound lanes, Nyasia Clifton, 20, and a passenger in Clifton’s vehicle – 21-year-old Katherine McKoy – to the hospital for treatment, Michael said.
Police say Brooks has active warrants charging him with larceny and two counts of assault after a March 16 larceny at a Kroger on South Roxboro Street. He is also wanted for two misdemeanor probation violations, Michael said.
Police are asking anyone with information on Brooks’ whereabouts to call CrimeStoppers at 919-683-1200. CrimeStoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.
