WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man accused of leaving the scene of an accident that left two Woodstock teens dead was taken back to jail Thursday with an increased bond.

Daniel Huber, 21, was first charged in August with failure to report a fatal traffic crash and aggravated street racing. Huber allegedly was drag racing with Jacob Norys and Alec Kaiser, both 16, just before the fatal crash.

He posted 10 percent of his $45,000 bond shortly after his arrest, and subsequently was placed on pretrial court supervision. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kennealy said Huber violated a condition of his bond when he was charged in April with public consumption of alcohol.

Judge Sharon Prather on Thursday ordered Huber’s bond be forfeited and increased it to $100,000. He remains in McHenry County Jail until he can post 10 percent, or $10,000.

He has another court date Friday.
