According to Lake County prosecutors, DUI charges were dropped against Joseph Cardinale, 43, of Chicago, who was involved in a fatal crash in Long Grove this past September. Cardinale’s SUV collided with a motorcycle driven by Anthony Brust, 21. Brust did not survive the blunt force trauma he sustained to his head. Cardinale was not injured in the collision.
Laboratory results reportedly show that Cardinale was not impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. As a result, the misdemeanor DUI charges were dropped by the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. He still faces a petty traffic citation for failure to yield right of way.
