Prosecutors say a man and a woman were injured after the man intentionally crashed his car into the woman’s car, causing a rollover crash in Zion.
Kenneth D. King, 38, of Zion, was charged with two counts of enhanced domestic battery, driving under the influence of alcohol and reckless driving.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Daly said a woman’s daughter called 911 on March 19.
The daughter reported King was involved in a domestic incident with her mother and that King had struck the woman.
Officers with the Zion Police Department were responding to the call when they received a call for a traffic crash with injuries.
They arrived and found a 2006 Honda, belonging to the female victim in the domestic, rolled over.
A second vehicle, belonging to King, was also involved in the crash.
Officers spoke with the victim, who reported that she had been involved in an argument with King, who is her boyfriend.
She drove away from the house and noticed King was following her in his car.
King used his vehicle to strike the side of her car, which caused the victim’s car to roll over off the road, Daly said. King’s car sustained heavy damage.
Multiple witnesses observed King pulling the victim away from the crash scene.
The victim suffered a laceration on her forehead and lip. King was also injured and transported to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.
King was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident, Daly said.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered King held on a $200,000 bond.
King remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post 10% of his bond to be released.
A status of attorney hearing is scheduled for Monday.
