A Skokie man was charged Friday in connection with a hit-and-run accident that took the life of a bicyclist.
Kristian Hernandez, 36, was charged with Class 1 felony counts of leaving the scene of an accident and failure to report an accident resulting in death.
A bicyclist discovered the victim lying in the grass just off Touhy Avenue near the Axehead Lake Forest Preserve.
Police say Hernandez took a vehicle brought into an auto body shop for an estimate on repairs that matched a car they were looking for in connection with the accident.
Hernandez was arrested Wednesday and police say he's confessed to the crime. He's being held on a $100,000 bond.
