Prosecutors in Madison County charged 24-year-old Jacob Fickle with failing to report an accident involving personal injury or death.

Investigators say Fickle caused a disturbance Sunday at a Godfrey home and fled in a family member's vehicle after authorities were called. That SUV then crashed into a nearby home, and the driver ran from the scene before being arrested a short time later outside a tavern.

The man killed had no connection to the driver.

Fickle couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday. Court records don't show whether Fickle has an attorney, and he doesn't have a listed home telephone number.
