$600,000 Bail for Carpentersville Man Charged in Fatal Hit-and-Run

Alonso Huerta-Perez, 23, of Carpentersville is accused of fleeing a crash after blowing through a stop sign in West Chicago while intoxicated. Huerta-Perez collided with another car, killing the driver.

Huerta-Perez allegedly stated that he drank eight or nine beers before the crash. Five other people were in the car when it went through the stop sign and struck a vehicle driven by Austin Weidner, 27, of Schaumburg. Weidner was rushed to Central Dupage Hospital and pronounced dead.

Huerta-Perez’s vehicle overturned after the crash and he allegedly attempted to flee the scene with the other five passengers, but West Chicago police were able to apprehend him after a witness provided information. He was charged with leaving the scene of a fatal crash.

Michael Fisher, Dupage County’s Assistant State’s Attorney, expects that charges are to be upgraded to aggravated drunk driving resulting in a death after Huerta-Perez’s blood alcohol analysis is complete. Huerta-Perez may face up to 14 years in prison.

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.
