By Daily Egyptian staff

Police have arrested a Murphysboro man on a charge of failure to report a fatal traffic crash stemming from a November incident.

Ryne J. Sasso, 28, was arrested Thursday after investigators used crash reconstruction to identify his vehicle in a crash that killed a 46-year-old pedestrian, according to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.

Police said the victim, Bruce Glenn, was walking with another man on Airport Road the evening of Nov. 25 when he was struck by a westbound vehicle, authorities said. He was taken to a St. Louis hospital where he died of his injuries several days later. Another man was also struck and suffered minor injuries, police said.


Sasso, who also faces a charge of driving with a revoked license, is held on a $250,000 bond. His next court date is Dec. 22.
