ST. CHARLES, Ill. — Bail was set for $500,000 for a man charged in the hit-and-run death of an elderly woman in a wheelchair.
Andrew Jensen, 23, is charged with failure to report an accident or death, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in personal injury or death and failure to yield at a crosswalk.
Jensen turned himself in to St. Charles police just before midnight Friday.
Police said 88-year-old Helen Radnoti, from Chicago, and her son were crossing at 3rd Street near Main around 4 p.m. Friday, when a Dodge pick-up turned right, struck the woman, and kept going.
Radnoti was transported to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Jensen appeared in bond court Monday where bail was set at $500,000. He is due in court again on Oct. 20.
