The Johnson County District Attorney's Office has charged Jonathan Brooks with "failure to stop at an accident resulting in death." Brooks is a 27-years-old resident of Kansas City, Missouri. He is arraigned in Johnson County Court on Friday and his bond was set at  $250,000.

Police had been looking for the second vehicle involved in the accident, which was described as a silver Mitsubishi, possibly an Eclipse. The TIPS Hotline received a call on Wednesday afternoon telling Police where they could find that vehicle. Overland Park Police say that the vehicle was located in Kansas City, Missouri by Kansas City Police using the information obtained by the tipster.

Kansas City, Missouri Police arrested Brooks and he was extradited to Johnson County late on Friday. Police also say that the vehicle was secured and then towed to the Johnson County Crime Lab for further investigation.

Brooks posted the $250,000 bond after appearing for his court date on Monday. His next court appearance is scheduled for October 13th.
