CARLYLE, Ill. (AP) - A Damiansville man accused in connection with a fatal southern Illinois hit-and-run vehicle wreck that killed a pedestrian is free on bond.

The Belleville News-Democrat (https://bit.ly/T1Kg03) reports 25-year-old Jonathon Nast posted his bond Friday shortly after being charged in Clinton County with failure to report a motor vehicle accident involving death. He’s also accused of obstructing justice.

Police in Breese say officers responded to reports of a woman walking in and out of traffic early June 8 on old U.S. 50. They found Lana Albert’s body a couple hundred yards from a sports bar where the Edwardsville woman had been with friends.

Nast does not have a listed home telephone number. And online court records don’t show whether he has an attorney.
