Chicago Man Pleads Not Guilty in Fatal Wilmette DUI Crash

A Chicago man was indicted on July 13 in connection with a Wilmette crash that resulted in the death of two Chicago teenagers. According to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, 20-year-old Szymon Zawadzki, pleaded not guilt on Monday on charges of aggravated DUI and reckless homicide.

He is allegedly responsible for the crash in which Veronica Rojas, 18, and Natalie Stygar, 17, of the Northwest Side were killed. The crash occurred on June 28th in Wilmette around 2:30 a.m., when Zawadzki’s car went off the road and struck a fire hydrant, then a tree and ultimately ended up in the front yard of a home. Both girls were pronounced dead at Evanston Hospital. A third girl sitting in the backseat was critically injured, while a front seat passenger was treated and released from Evanston Hospital.

Court records indicate that Zawadzki picked up the girls and went to a movie. Afterward, they allegedly bought a bottle of vodka to celebrate Rojas’ birthday at Wilmette beach.
