Cicero Woman Crashes into Blue Line while Drinking and Driving

Jessica Garcia, 21, crashed through a dead-end barrier at Garfield street while allegedly driving her Jeep Grand Cherokee under the influence of alcohol. After crashing through the barrier, her Jeep flew over freight train tracks and came to a rest on the Blue Line tracks at the Austin Station in Oak Park. The crash interrupted Blue Line service for a couple of hours.

Officers found Garcia sitting outside of her vehicle when they arrived. She was taken to Loyola University Medical Center for minor injuries and a few broken teeth.

Garcia was charged with felony driving under the influence after toxicology tests showed her blood alcohol level to be at 0.188. She was also cited for driving without insurance, driving without a license and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
