A Grand Boulevard neighborhood man charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash last week in the Bronzeville neighborhood on the South Side has been ordered held on a $75,000 bond.
Wilson G. Jones, 27, of the 400 block of East Oakwood Boulevard, was charged with a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident and cited for disobeying a red light and failure to reduce speed, according to Chicago Police.
About 1:50 p.m. July 22, Jones was driving west in a 2016 Ford cargo van on 33rd Street when he ran a red light at Indiana Avenue and collided with a 2014 Ford F-150 pickup truck, police said. Jones got out of the vehicle after the collision and ran away.
The 37-year-old driver of the pickup was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Authorities have not released his name.
On Monday, Judge Adam Bourgeois Jr. ordered Jones held at Cook County Jail on a $75,000 bond, court records show. He is next scheduled to appear in court Aug. 12.
