Lisle man faces drunk driving charges after Naperville car accident

A 24-year-old Lisle man is facing two drunk driving charges after causing a serious car accident in Naperville. Authorities say that the man was intoxicated and driving over 100 mph when he crashed into two parked cars and a lamp post earlier this week.

In addition to his drunk driving charges, the man was also cited for improper lane use, reckless driving and speeding more than 40 mph over the posted speed limit according to the Chicago-Sun Times.

CBS Chicago reports that the crash happened at a strip mall at the intersection of Chicago Avenue and Naper Boulevard at the border of Lisle and Naperville.

Authorities say that the man was traveling alone at the time of the accident and not seriously injured. No one else was hurt in this particular crash and CBS Chicago was unable to find any prior criminal history for the man.

Speeding and DUI charges are highly common in the Chicago area. There are multiple ways that a defendant can overcome drunk driving charges including proving that breath test equipment was fault and demonstrating that the person who administered the breath test was not qualified to do so.

Police have no reported exactly how intoxicated the 24-year-old driver was.
