Bingham was driving a 1991 Cadillac near the intersection of Kimball and Spring streets when it struck and damaged a 1997 Toyota Camry, prosecutors said. After failing to stop, his Cadillac later struck and damaged a 2005 Scion near the intersection of Kimball Street and Grover Avenue.

Bingham drove off after the crash before being taken to a hospital, where he recorded a blood-alcohol concentration of .364, prosecutors said.

He is being held at the Kane County Jail on $15,000 bond, prosecutors said. His next court date was set for Thursday.
