BLOOMINGTON (WEEK) – A Bloomington man has died from injuries he suffered Saturday when he was struck by a driver who authorities say was under the influence of drugs.

McLean County Coroner Kathy Yoder pronounced Dezel Dotts, 26, dead Tuesday evening at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center.

Preliminary autopsy results indicate Dotts died from cerebral and cervical injuries after a car hit him Saturday evening at Six Points Road and Juniper Lane, on Bloomington’s southwest side.

Later that night, police said they found the driver, Thomas E. Hall, 61, walking near Four Seasons Road and Ross Drive.

Monday, prosecutors charged Hall with two counts of aggravated DUI and one count of failure to report the collision, all felonies. Late Wednesday, McLean County State’s Attorney Don Knapp told 25 News that he anticipates his office will upgrade the charges.

Hall is being held on $200,000 bail, which means he has to post $20,000 cash to be released from the McLean County Jail.

Hall’s next court appearance is scheduled for September 24.
