Child Involved in Chicago Hit-and-Run Left Critically Injured

Andre Howard, 22, was charged with failure to report an accident, cited for DUI, and driving without insurance. Howard allegedly struck a 4-year-old girl at about 4:30 p.m on Monday near the 7100 block of South Normal Avenue. He reportedly slowed down, but did not completely stop before striking the girl. The hit-and-run crash left her critically injured. The girl was transported to Comer’s Children’s Hospital, suffering from a lacerated spleen as well as contusions to her lung and liver. About 5 hours after the crash, Howard reportedly surrendered himself to the police and gave a written statement in which he admitted to smoking marijuana. Howard’s bond was set at $200,000 by a Cook County judge.

I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.

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.
