5 People Injured During Early Morning DUI Accident In Chicago

According to a July 14 Chicago Tribune story titled “Driver cited with DUI in Little Village Rollover crash,” a 21-year-old man, Roberto Curiel, was cited with driving under the influence following an early morning collision.

That car accident injured him and four others when his truck collided with a SUV in the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago, authorities said.

According to the article:

Robeto Curiel was cited with DUI, disobeying a traffic signal, failure to reduce speed, being involved in a collision and failure to produce a drivers license, said Police News Affairs Officer Darryl Baety.

The 1:30 a.m. crash in the 3900 block of West Ogden Avenue prompted an emergency medical response from fire officials.

The SUV carrying two people collided with a truck carrying three adults, said Officer Ronald Gaines, a police spokesman.

A fire department spokesman initially said that only three people were injured.

The most seriously injured was Curiel, who was the driver of the truck, and a 55-year-old man in the SUV, Gaines said. The older man was taken to Stroger Hospital, while Curiel was taken to Mount Sinai. Both were listed in serious condition.

Two women inside the truck, ages 32 and 23, were hospitalized with lesser injuries. A 47-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital in good condition, Gaines said.
