Two Cook County correctional officers involved in fatal DUI crash

A crash in Woodbridge this month left one man dead and another behind bars on DUI charges. Both men were correctional officers with the Cook County Sheriff's Department.

The crash occurred around 4 p.m. on Dec. 17. Two passenger vehicles and a light-duty box truck were involved, although it wasn't reported who was driving which vehicle.

The man who was killed, who was in his late 20s, was from Addison. He worked at the Cook County Jail.

The 30-year-old driver who was eventually arrested was first taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. The following day, he was arrested on charges including aggravated DUI causing bodily harm. Police say the Berwyn man may have also been speeding. He was released from Will County Jail after posting 10 percent of his $3,000 bond.

The man has been de-deputized while the crash is being investigated by officers from multiple agencies, including the Illinois State Police and the Felony Investigative Assistance Team. The Cook County Sheriff's Office is also doing an internal investigation.

So far, the autopsy has confirmed only that the man died from the injuries he suffered in the crash. The final cause of death hasn't yet been determined.

This time of year, too many people are the victims of drunk drivers. Those injured and surviving family members of people who are killed in DUI crashes want to see the criminal justice system deal with those responsible for the crash. However, they can also seek compensation for medical care, physical therapy, burial costs, lost wages and other costs and damages by holding the driver responsible in civil court.
