CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police say a man accused of causing a fatal hit-and-run wreck last month during a police chase is in custody.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/21M2AXp) reports that 24-year-old Mikal Hamilton was arrested Friday on March 1 charges of involuntary manslaughter and leaving a crash scene. He’s jailed on $100,000 bond.

Velda City police say they tried to stop a Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Feb. 26 when the car sped away and ran a red light at the intersection, fatally hitting 23-year-old Keisha Redding of St. Louis.

The car later was found abandoned in St. Louis.

Online court records do not show whether Hamilton has an attorney.
