Man Accused of Fleeing Deadly SUV Wreck with House

By The Associated Press

GODFREY, Ill. (AP) - A man is jailed in southwestern Illinois on charges that accuse him of fleeing after accidentally hitting a house with his SUV and killing the 73-year-old man inside the home.  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.
