Television station WDAF reports 19-year-old Thomas Weyer is charged with one count of leaving the scene of a fatal crash in the Oct. 10 death of 66-year-old Steven Hickle, of Wichita.

Investigators say Hickle had left the stadium during a rain delay of a Chiefs game, and was crossing a street when he was hit by two vehicles that left the scene.

Court documents say an anonymous tip led police to Weyer, who initially denied involvement, but later admitted hitting Hickle after being told police had learned his vehicle was at the scene of the fatality at the time of the hit-and-run crash.
