(CBS) — Two men have been charged in a crash in Robbins that killed a mother and father and injured their three children Thursday night in Robbins, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.
Craig Stevenson, 41, of Lynwood and Douglas McGrew, 25, of Robbins were each charged with reckless homicide. McGrew has also been charged with two counts of aggravated DUI.
The sheriff’s office says McGew and Stevenson were racing at a high rate of speed on Central Park and both cars ran a stop sign at 137th Street and hit a minivan.
The minivan was driven by 43-year-old Chires Davis-Jones, who was killed in the crash along with 59-year-old Less Jones. Their three children were also in the minivan and remain hospitalized in stable condition. A trust fund is set being set up at a South Holland Chase Bank to benefit the orphaned children.
CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reports the community is rallying around the survivors. A worship service was being held Sunday afternoon at St. John Community Church in Robbins. Dozens were there to support the family both spiritually as well as financially.
McGrew and a passenger from his vehicle and Stevenson and a passenger from his vehicle were hospitalized after the accident. A judge set bail for Stevenson at $1 million. McGrew remains hospitalized and his date in bond court is pending.
