Negligent Driver Faces Charges in Chicago DUI Accident

This weekend bond was set at $250,000 for a man charged with felony aggravated driving while under the influence charges after he seriously injured a suburban Chicago police officer Friday night.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times Montgomery, the police Sergeant was responding to a shots fired call in his area when and was struck by a car driven by the 18 year old who was attempting to fleethe party where the shots were fired.

Montgomery police disclosed that the Sergeant’s injuries were serious, having suffered a broken scapula, compressed discs in his back, a fractured skull requiring stitches, as well as many bruises and lacerations around his head, face, and body.

Almost 11,000 people die in alcohol impaired driving accidents every year. Illinois is an especially dangerous state to live in when it comes to drunk driving.

Illinois, ranks among the nations top ten states in total vehicle deaths a year. Of those, nearly 50% of its vehicle fatalities are related with alcohol. (National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration) In addition, over 1.4 million people were arrested in 2010 for driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics.

Whether it is alcohol, marijuana, or any other type of drug, operating a vehicle in an altered state of mind can be extremely dangerous, and puts the rest of the motorists on the road in serious danger. Every year, 345,000 people in the United States are injured as a result of a drunk driver. (National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration FARS Statistics)

Drunk drivers are unable to think and react as quickly as is needed to drive safely on the road. As we can clearly see from the serious injuries of this police Sergeant, victims of drunk driving accidents can be very seriously injured and in many cases are unable to return to work for weeks or even months.
