(KMOV) – A suspect has been charged after a 29-year-old man was struck by a hit-and-run driver and died from his injuries.
 
The incident happened around 12:30 a.m. on Monday outside Novak’s Bar and Grill on Manchester Road.
 
Police say John Foster Courtney was standing outside the St. Louis bar when Justin Kramarczyk, 24, hit him in a Hyundai Sante Fe. Kramarczyk then allegedly sped away from the scene. 
   
Courtney was rushed to a local hospital after incident and had been listed in critical, but stable condition.  He later passed away around 11:30 p.m. on Monday night.
 
Kramarczyk was taken into custody Monday afternoon and a warrant was issued for leaving the scene of the accident. A judge set Kramarczyk's bond at $50,000, cash-only.
