CHICAGO (CBS) – A 32-year-old man has been charged with felony drunk driving, after his SUV slammed into a minivan late Sunday night, critically injuring the woman driving the van.

Mareo Nutall was charged with two felony counts of aggravated DUI, and was issued four traffic citations — two for DUI, one for driving on a suspended license, and one for failure to reduce speed.

Police said Nutall was driving a 2000 GMC SUV south on Lake Shore Drive, when it rear-ended a 2005 Chrysler minivan in the 4500 block of South Lake Shore Drive.
