Police say a 17-year-old Algonquin boy was driving under the influence and using an electronic device during a crash that killed a 26-year-old man in Barrington Hills.
The 17-year-old, whose name was not released because he is a minor, was charged in a juvenile petition with aggravated driving under the influence, reckless homicide and aggravated use of an electronic communication device.
All of the charges are felonies, the most serious being aggravated driving under the influence, which is a Class 2 felony.
The charges stem from a two-vehicle crash on May 21 that left Ismoiljon Khakimov, 26, of Elgin, deceased.
The incident occurred around 11:10 p.m. at Route 68 and Bateman Road, according to Barrington Hills Police Department Press Information Officer William Walsh.
Two vehicles were involved and Khakimov was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The juvenile was injured and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Walsh said.
The Major Crash Assistance Team assisted the Barrington Hills Police Department in the investigation.
The months-long investigation showed that the juvenile was driving under the influence and using an electronic device when he caused the crash.
The juvenile is scheduled to appear in court on August 19.
