A man has been charged with DUI for a rollover crash late Sunday that injured four people, including a Chicago Police officer, in the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
Carlos Villamil, 27, of the Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side, was charged with two felony counts of aggravated DUI causing an accident resulting in bodily harm, according to Chicago Police. He was also charged with one count each of DUI, failure to reduce speed and driving without insurance.
About 11:10 p.m., he was driving east in the 2500 block of West Fullerton when his 2002 Dodge Caravan rear-ended a squad car with its emergency equipment activated, police said. The Caravan then crashed head-on into a westbound 2002 Ford Focus, which rolled onto its side.
An 18-year-old woman and 21-year-old man inside the Focus were taken to Stroger Hospital and Illinois Masonic Medical Center, respectively, police said. Villamil was also taken to Masonic, where he remained hospitalized Wednesday morning.
Chicago Fire Department Chief Juan Hernandez said all three people were listed in serious-to-critical condition. Police said their conditions were all stabilized.
One officer suffered minor injuries in the crash, police said. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Villamil was ordered held on a $75,000 bond, according to Cook County sheriff’s records. He remained hospitalized in police custody Wednesday and his next court date was scheduled for Sept. 19.
