Teen Charged with Felony DUI in Elgin Crash that Injured Four

Luis Romo, 18, was charged with driving under the influence after a crash that took place early Sunday morning in Elgin. According to police, Romo ran a stop sign and hit a SUV carrying three men around 1 a.m. Romo’s pickup truck reportedly pushed the SUV into a parked car. The crash had such force that the floor fell from the chassis. Romo’s truck ran up on the sidewalk and took out about 100 feet of chain-link fencing. The fence poles went through the truck’s hood, windshield, engine compartment and the floor of the vehicle. The jaws of life were used to remove all four people from their vehicles. Romo as well as the three occupants of the SUV were taken to nearby hospitals. Although severe, none of the injuries were reportedly life threatening.

Romo was charged with two felony counts of DUI, operating an unisured motor vehicle while causing bodily harm and with a stop sign violation. According to police, Romo had a BAC of 0.17, which is more than twice the legal limit.

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.
