Authorities said they have charged a man in connection to the death of a woman struck by a car while walking on the sidewalk in Woodstock.

Joseph Randall Champion was charged last week with vehicular homicide and failure to maintain lanes in connection to the fatal accident.

It happened Oct. 11 along Arnold Mill. Police said Stacy Utz was walking on the side of the road when a passing truck struck her. She died at the scene.

It is unclear if Champion has surrendered himself to authorities yet.
