Palos Heights Man Convicted in Deadly DUI Wreck

Scott Rossow of Palos Hills was convicted on November 29, 2010 of Aggravated DUI in connection with a one-car collision that killed his two passengers in 2006.

Rossow was allegedly driving in excess of 100 mph on St Francis Road when he left the roadway and hit a tree in the early morning hours of December 8, 2006. Rossow and his two passengers were ejected from the vehicle. Passengers Christopher C. Sommers, a longtime friend and petty officer third class in the U.S. Coast Guard, and Rossow’s step brother, Davis Sauseda, died at the scene.

Rossow’s defense attorney attempted to argue that Rossow was not driving the car. Evidence from a highly technical reconstruction report was used to prove who was responsible for the crash.

He was found guilty at the conclusion of an eight day bench trial. Rossow, 27, faces up to 28 years in prison. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for January 21, 2011.
