A 19-year-old Aurora man is wanted on a warrant for his involvement in a March 31 hit-and-run accident that killed a 37-year-old Aurora man on the city's east side.

Kendrick Scott, of the 2000 block of Rosehall Lane, is charged with one count of reckless homicide and driving 35 mph or more over the posted speed limit in a complaint filed Tuesday evening.

According to the felony complaint, Scott "operated a motor vehicle in a reckless manner, with hydrocodone in his system, in the dark, operating in excess of 35 MPH over the posted speed limit on Ogden Avenue in Aurora."

Lorenzo I. Bryant, of the 1000 block of Pheasant Run Lane, Aurora, was pronounced dead at the scene in the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Long Grove Drive according to an Aurora police Facebook post shortly after the crash.

Officials said Scott was driving a 2013 Buick Regal westbound on Ogden Avenue with a 19-year-old woman in the car when it struck Bryant, who was on foot, about 11:10 p.m. It was unclear whether Scott was in the crosswalk when he was hit.

Aurora Police spokesman Dan Ferrelli referred all questions Tuesday to the DuPage County State's Attorney's office. Paul Darrah, spokesman for the state's attorney's office was unable to confirm the charges Tuesday.
