Two drivers in fatal crash charged with DUI

Two drivers in fatal crash charged with DUI

Date: September 16, 2013

Authorities believe impaired driving was a factor in an accident that claimed the life of one person and injured two others when two vehicles crashed into a roadside ditch in Illinois. The drivers of the vehicles are now facing DUI charges as well as other charges related to the incident. The accident occurred just after midnight on Monday, Sept. 2, in the 5600 block of 11th Street in Rockford.

According to media sources, a Harvard man, whose 2007 Chrysler 300 was rear-ended by a 2002 GMC Envoy, was charged with DUI and DUI with a blood-alcohol content higher than .08. The driver of the Envoy, a 19-year-old New Milford man, is also facing multiple charges, including aggravated DUI involving death, reckless homicide, reckless driving, minor drinking and driving without insurance.

Police were called to the scene of the accident at approximately 12:13 a.m. Reports indicate that they found a 35-year-old passenger who had been riding in the rear seat of the Chevy dead at the scene. According to the Winnebago County Coroner, the cause of death was blunt trauma to the head. A second passenger in the car and the driver of the Envoy both sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Emergencies services transported them to local hospitals for treatment.

Surviving family members who are grieving the loss of a loved one in a car crash due to the negligence of another might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of pursuing a wrongful death claim during this difficult and stressful time. An experienced attorney may offer emotional support to Illinois clients in this situation while working to help them obtain just compensation for their pain and suffering, loss of future income, and funeral and burial expenses.
