Two arrested for drunk driving after Stevenson Expressway crash

Posted on in Uncategorized

Two drivers were arrested for misdemeanor drunk driving this weekend after a serious car accident on Chicago's Southwest Side. Authorities say that two alleged drunk drivers crashed into eachother on the Stevenson Expressway, near Damen Avenue.

The crash happened shortly after midnight when a driver of a Mercury Sable parked on the expressway. A driver of a Scion TC tried to avoid the parked vehicle but was unable to.

NBC Chicago reports that a passenger in the Scion was injured and taken to John H. Stroger Hospital. A police spokesman told reporters that drugs and alcohol were factors in this crash and that both drivers were charged with misdemeanor DUI.

Drunk driving crashes such as this one are common in Chicago. There are multiple ways that a driver can defend themselves against misdemeanor drunk driving charges including demonstrating that police officers improperly administered a breath test or that the breath test equipment was faulty.

It is unclear whether the drivers involved in the Stevenson Parkway crash will face more severe DUI charges pending further investigation.
