Elvis Hernandez, 28, was pronounced dead last week at Weiss Memorial Hospital in Chicago after being hospitalized for over a year resulting form a hit-and-run DUI crash in west suburban Aurora. Hernandez was the passenger of a SUV being driven by his friend David Solis, 28, when the vehicle crashed into the back of a 2009 International 4400 box truck that was stopped in traffic.

Solis allegedly abandoned the SUV with his friend in the front passenger seat at an adjoining gas station and fled the scene on foot. When Aurora police arrived on scene they found Hernandez suffering from major head trauma. Paramedics took Hernandez to Rush Copley Medical Center. Solis returned to the scene 45 minutes after the accident and was arrested after witnesses identified him as the driver. Solis was charged with driving under the influence of drugs, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, driving on a suspended license and driving without insurance.

Kane County State’s Attorney and Aurora police are working together to pursue upgraded charges against Solis since the death of Hernandez.
