One Killed, Two Injured In Fiery Head On Crash In West Chicago

A West Chicago man has been charged with drunken driving after a fiery weekend auto accident in which a father of two was killed, DuPage County prosecutors said Monday. Omar Montoya Medina, 29, has been charged with two counts of aggravated DUI.

Montoya Medina's blood alcohol level was 0.16 — twice the legal limit — when he struck a car being driven by Antonio Alvarez, 37, of Warrenville in West Chicago. Alvarez was attempting to turn onto Illinois Route 59 from Garys Mill Road when his vehicle was struck by Montoya Medina's vehicle, which was northbound on Route 59, according to authorities.

Both vehicles were engulfed in flames, according to police, and Alvarez was pronounced dead at the scene.
