A northwest suburban driver has been charged with leaving the scene where his vehicle fatally struck a pedestrian earlier this year in Mount Prospect.

Allan M. Dorfman, 64, faces a felony count of failure to report an accident involving a death for the crash that happened about 8:15 p.m. on March 22, according to Mount Prospect police.

Dorfman’s 2013 Nissan Altima hit 46-year-old Jose F. Gonzalez-Navarette on Algonquin Road east of Briarwood Drive, and Dorfman then drove off, police said.

Gonzalez-Navarette, of the 1100 block of East Arlington Road in Arlington Heights, was taken to Northwest Community Hospital, where was he was pronounced dead, authorities said at the time.

A judge on Friday set bond at $200,000 for Dorfman, who lives in the 800 block of Kingbridge Way in Buffalo Grove, police said. He is due back in court Oct. 8.
