A Rock Island man pleaded guilty Wednesday to failing to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in a death in connection with the hit-and-run death of a 28-year-old Scott County man in September.
Randal Ray Brocksieck, 38, also pleaded guilty to driving without insurance, a simple misdemeanor, in Scott County District Court, according to a plea agreement filed Wednesday.
He faces up to five years in prison on the failure to stop charge when he is sentenced Oct. 4. Brocksieck remained free on bond.
At 1:20 a.m. Sept. 11, Davenport police were dispatched to 3rd and Cedar streets for a pedestrian who had been hit by a 2001 white Ford Expedition, according to an arrest affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint.
The pedestrian, later identified as Donavon Ray Sammon, died from his injuries.
Brocksieck was identified as the driver of the Ford Expedition by a passenger in the vehicle, and he later admitted he was the driver that morning, according to the affidavit.
He struck Sammon, who had entered the roadway, and stopped and got out of his vehicle, but Brocksieck did not stay at the scene or call police, according to the affidavit.
Brocksieck went to the police department and spoke with police about 15 hours after the crash, according to the affidavit.
