Woman Charged With DUI In Englewood Crash That Injured Four
CHICAGO (STMW) — A Chicago woman has been charged with driving under the influence in connection to a crash in Englewood that hospitalized four people early Friday.
About 12:30 a.m., 23-year-old Octavia Hubbard, of the 4000 block of South Lake Park Avenue, and her boyfriend got into an argument near the intersection of West 70th Street and South Wolcott Avenue, police said.
During the dispute, the woman — along with two other women, ages 18 and 22 — left in a Chevrolet minivan and headed east on West 69th Street, followed by her boyfriend in another vehicle.
Hubbard then drove through a red light at the intersection of West 69th and South Halsted streets, striking a Ford Fusion that was traveling south on Halsted, police said.
She then drove into two other parked cars when she and her two passengers were ejected from the minivan, police said.
Hubbard was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in “stable” condition, and the two other women in the minivan were both taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, also in “stable” condition, police said.
The 52-year-old man driving the Fusion was taken to St. Bernard Hospital in “stable” condition, police said.
Hubbard has been charged with one felony count of aggravated DUI with no valid license and misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, criminal damage to property and driving on a suspended license, police announced Saturday.
She is scheduled to appear in bond court Saturday.
