Investigators say a man identified as Tom Dalof was crossing the street when a car ran into him and kept on going. Dalof was taken to a hospital where he died.
Later, police found the car abandoned in an alley in the 1300 block of West Granville, near the scene of the accident, and smashed into a utility pole.
The suspect Boubacar Bah, 24, has been charged with reckless homicide and leaving the scene of an accident. Both charges are felonies.
