Delia Aguila, 27, of Humboldt Park was allegedly driving under the influence when she struck and killed two people changing a tire in the Parkview neighborhood. At approximately 10:45 p.m. on Saturday night, Aguila’s minivan reportedly swerved and struck William Brunson, 39, of Chicago and Victoria Means, 34, of Riverdale. According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, both of them were tragically pronounced dead on the scene. Aguila allegedly continued driving, but witnesses assisted police in locating the minivan a couple of blocks away. Aguila was charged with two counts of felony aggravated DUI, reckless driving, open alcohol, driving without a license, driving without insurance, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, improper lane usage, and failure to render aid. She is due in bond court today.
