DIXON, Ill. (AP) -- Lee County authorities say a Dixon woman who was dragged by a car last week has died.
Kimberly Landwer was taken off life support at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria on Thursday and died Friday.
Lee County State's Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller says the driver of the car, Keith J. Shomaker, has been charged in the case. However, she has said the 19-year-old Shomaker could face a reckless homicide charge if Landwer died.
Shomaker is currently being held in lieu of $50,000 bond on charges of leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
Authorities say Landwer got out of Shomaker's car after Landwer and a Dixon man argued. Landwer leaned into the front passenger-side window and Shomaker drove off, causing the woman to fall under the car.
