According to the Chicago Tribune, “A 52-year-old woman struck by a vehicle as she crossed a Washington Park neighborhood street Tuesday has died, officials said today…Geno Green, 25, was charged with aggravated driving under the influence charge in the accident that injured Poole at about 1:25 p.m. Tuesday, according to Chicago police.”
Immediately following the incident the woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later passed away as a result of her injuries.
The driver of the vehicle will now face charges in conjunction with the Chicago car accident, including:
This is not the first time the driver of the vehicle has been brought up on drug charges. In 2010, he was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance analog (a substance with chemical similarities to an illegal drug). Those charges were later dropped. Earlier this year, he was again charged with possession of a controlled substance in conjunction with a traffic case. When the case was prosecuted, the possession charge was dropped and he received a fine in the traffic case.
Every year, lives are lost and families are destroyed as a result of people operating a vehicle while under the influence. Although people operating under the influence are not fully in control of their faculties and are known to make poor decisions, this does not exempt them from responsibility or liability for their actions—especially if serious Chicago injuries or wrongful death result. Also, filing a Chicago car accident case or wrongful death lawsuit can allow you to recover the costs incurred from medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages, and other damages suffered.
If you or a loved one have been involved in a Chicago DUI car accident – especially one that resulted in wrongful death – you need to speak with a qualified Chicago car accident attorney right away.
