Man facing DUI charge following motorcycle accident

An Illinois man was taken into police custody on July 25 following a motorcycle accident that left a passenger with severe injuries. The motorcyclist was believed to be under the influence when the accident occurred.

The accident took place at about 10:30 p.m. near 111th Street and Parker Road in Palos Park. According to the prosecutor, the man was operating the motorcycle with a female passenger when he allegedly lost control of the motorcycle, causing the one-vehicle crash. Both operator and passenger were taken to the hospital. The female passenger reportedly suffered a severe facial laceration that needed stitches, lost teeth and a broken jaw. The report said that the injuries were severe enough that she may be permanently disfigured.

At the scene of the accident, the man allegedly told the responding officers that he had had two beers before driving. He allegedly then told the emergency room staff that he had had four beers. While in the ER, he also allegedly consented to having a DUI kit completed. The man was ultimately charged with aggravated DUI causing great bodily harm. He was being held without bond for another charge that was pending.

DUI charges can result in serious administrative and legal consequences that can impact a person's ability to live a normal life. A loss of the person's driver's license can prevent him or her from getting to work or run family-related errands. In some cases, a person may even be facing a jail sentence depending on the circumstances that led to the drunk driving charge. A DUI defense attorney may challenge the evidence that was collected during the investigation, especially if the authorities violated the person's rights or did not properly administer breath or blood tests.
