An Illinois man was recently indicted for his alleged role in a fatal pedestrian accident, although he is not yet in police custody. He is facing a single count for leaving the scene of a fatal accident and eight counts for aggravated drunk driving. His blood-alcohol content -- BAC -- was allegedly above the legal limit at the time of the wreck, which is why he is facing DUI charges.
