CHAMPAIGN, IL – A man from Champaign was arrested on Tuesday in connection to a hit-and-run that claimed the life of a motorcyclist on Friday, June 30th. 

According to WICS, the motorcyclist was riding south on Neil Street at about 5:49 p.m. when a vehicle veered into his path near the Maple Street intersection. He attempted to maneuver around the vehicle but could not do so in time and collided with it.
