Teenage Son of Harvey Cop Charged with Stealing City Vehicle

The son of a Harvey police commander was charged with Aggravated Possession of a Stolen Motor Vehicle and Aggravated Reckless Driving after allegedly crashing a stolen city owned vehicle into another car outside of Ingalls Memorial Hospital. The driver of the other vehicle was seriously injured.

The vehicle driven by Divonne Keel, a 2003 Ford Explorer, was assigned to his father. The injured motorist, Donna Stroup, 59, was taken to Ingalls Hospital for treatment. She was listed in serious condition due to a fractured sternum and internal bleeding.

In a statement by Sandra Alvarado, Harvey police spokeswoman, said the commander told prosecutors his son had stolen the SUV. Alvarado said investigators are working with the Cook County States Attorney’s office to make sure the teen is “prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” and added that police are also conducting an internal investigation as to the commander.
