A Maywood resident was charged last week with aggravated reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident after leaving a pedestrian seriously injured during a Jan. 22 hit-and-run that happened at Roosevelt and Harlem in Forest Park, according to a Forest Park Review report.

Forest Park police arrested Xavier Watkins, 20, (pictured above) on Jan. 26. The following day, Watkins was charged and his bond set at $50,000, according to a Sun-Times report.

“Video footage from several red-light cameras near the accident showed a black sedan fleeing the scene and several witnesses gave possible partial license plate numbers,” the Review report notes.

The Sun-Times reports that the incident happened at around 10 p.m. The victim, the Sun-Times reports, was rushed to Loyola University Medical Center. Watkins is scheduled to appear in court in Maywood on Feb. 2. VFP
