Far South Side Crash Results in DUI Charges for Chicago Man

Posted on in DUI

A Chicago man has been charged after allegedly causing a crash that injured nine individuals, including four police officers.

Authorities say that the crash happened on the Far South Side last week when the man was traveling in a Nissan Altima on the 10200 block of South Indianpolis Avenue. CBS Chicago reports that the man hit an unmarked police car conducting a traffic cop shortly after midnight on Monday and caused a chain reaction.

Chicago Police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada says that the 69-year-old man's car rear-ended the squad car. The police car was pushed into a Chevy Tahoe and another cop car assisting with the stop was also hit.

The driver faces a host of charges including felony aggravated DUI causing an accident involving bodily harm. The man was also charged with two misdemeanor DUI counts, and negligent driving.

Drunk driving charges can be fought in several ways including demonstrating that a blood-alcohol test was conducted using faulty test equipment or that the person conducting the test was not qualified.

In addition to fines and penalties, individuals who fail to fight a DUI charge may also lose their license and have to undergo a lengthy license reinstatement process.
