The Pantagraph reports charges were dropped again Darin Scott, 54. Jakeb Collins, 22, is now charged with a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident involving a death. 

Both men were reportedly driving red vans with white paint on them.

Scott could still face unrelated DUI charges.

Jakeb C.S. Collins was arrested Thursday for leaving the scene of an accident in connection with the accident that left 79-year-old Phyllis Graver of Carmel, Ind. dead and another person injured. 

The investigation is ongoing, and the McLean County State's Attorney is reviewing the case.
