$1 Million Bond in Fatal Eisenhower DUI Crash Involving Squad Car

Frank Caruso, of Westchester, was involved in a minor accident on the Eisenhower Expressway on Saturday at about 1 a.m.. A state trooper arrived on the scene and positioned his vehicle with his emergency lights activated to warn other motorists of the accident. Caruso sat in the back of the squad to keep warm while waiting for a tow truck to arrive. At approximately 1:20 a.m., the squad car was rear-ended by a Chevy Impala. Caruso was taken to Elmhurst hospital where he was pronounced dead. The trooper sustained a concussion.

Daniel Clark, 32, of Chicago, was behind the wheel of the Impala and was charged with aggravated DUI involving death and aggravated DUI involving great bodily harm. He was also charged with failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, driving too fast for conditions, and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident according to the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office. Clark was taken to Alexian Brothers Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. He was ordered to be held on a $1 million bond Sunday in DuPage County.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
