Jeremiah Thompson, 36, of the 6900 block of South Laflin Street, has been charged with aggravated driving under the influence in the accident that claimed the life of 35-year-old Yasha Hicks.
Chicago police have arrested a man in connection with a fatal hit-and-run accident that occurred Saturday on the South Side. They say he was drinking.
Thompson was also charged with failure to keep inside traffic lanes, striking a pedestrian in the roadway and driving without insurance, according to a CPD press release.
He allegedly killed Hicks early Saturday on the 7300 block of South Racine Avenue and drove away from the scene.
Thompson is due in court Monday.
