A man has been charged with drunken driving in connection with the crash late Sunday that killed a 38-year-old man in southwest suburban Burbank, police said.
Leo Stevens, of the 2400 block of North Central Park Avenue in Chicago, was pronounced dead at 11:06 p.m. at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to a spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office.
The crash occurred on the 8500 block of South Cicero Avenue, officials said.
Police said in a statement that Francisco Chaidez, 38, was driving his Ford SUV north on Cicero in the southbound lanes when the vehicle rammed head-on into Stevens' GMC Yukon. Stevens, a 36-year-old woman and a 15-year-old girl were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.
The woman was listed in critical condition and the teen was treated for minor injuries and released to other family members, police said. Chaidez, of the 7700 block of South Keating Avenue in Chicago, also suffered minor injuries and was released to police.
Investigators say Chaidez's blood-alcohol level was more than twice 0.08, the legal limit for driving. He has been charged with two counts of aggravated driving under the influence and is due in court on Tuesday in Bridgeview.
