Detroit — A 28-year-old Detroit man has been arraigned on felony charges for a hit-and-run Sunday that killed a 69-year-old man on on the city's west side, officials said.
Rony Cesar Reyes-Euceda was arraigned in court Thursday on charges of operating with a suspended/revoked/denied license, causing death, and failure to stop at the scene of a crash when at fault, causing death, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.
A judge Wednesday ordered him held on a $100,000 bond and scheduled his next court hearing for next Friday Dec. 21.
Police accuse Reyes-Euceda of driving a vehicle and striking Gerald Kuras as he crossed Michigan Avenue at Parkinson in Detroit. Reyes-Euceda was heading south on Cecil, down to Parkinson, at the time, officials said.
Kuras died from his injuries. Reyes-Euceda allegedly fled.
