A man has been charged with driving drunk and causing a two-vehicle crash that left a 25-year-old woman dead and a second woman seriously injured in Park City.
The Park City Police Department and Waukegan Fire Department responded around 2:19 a.m. on December 3 to Route 120 and Knight Avenue for a report of a vehicle crash.
The Gurnee Police Department, Waukegan Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department also assisted at the scene.
Park City Police Commander Kenneth Stoves told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that the incident happened in front of the McDonald’s.
An investigation showed that a 2008 GMC pickup truck, driven by Yovany Reyes, 22, of Park City, had been traveling westbound on Route 120.
Reyes attempted to make a left turn into the McDonald’s parking lot.
A 2016 Mitsubishi, which was traveling eastbound on Route 120, struck the GMC after the GMC apparently pulled out in front of the Mitsubishi.
A woman driving the Mitsubishi, along with a female passenger, sustained serious injuries, Stoves said.
Paramedics transported both of them to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
Reyes was transported to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
The passenger of the Mitsubishi was in the intensive care unit with critical injuries and later died on December 17.
She was identified as Aysia Graham, 25, of Peoria, the Lake County Coroner’s Office said.
She died from complications of blunt force injuries due to the motor vehicle collision.
Reyes was charged in February with reckless homicide and two counts of driving under the influence of alcohol.
He was arrested on the warrant early last week and ordered held on a $200,000 bond.
Reyes was released from the Lake County Jail this week after posting 10% of his bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 5 in the case.
