19-year-old charged in fatal accident

MADISON, Ala. (AP) - Authorities in Madison County say a man charged with manslaughter and leaving the scene of the accident in a collision that killed a 6-year-old boy has bonded out of jail.

Authorities arrested 19-year-old Kyle David Morgan Sunday morning. Troopers say he's believed to be responsible for the hit and run accident that killed 6-year-old Matthew Dahl Saturday night in Madison County.

Troopers said the boy was riding his bicycle when he was struck by a truck. He was flown to Huntsville Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Morgan's bond was set at $55,000.
