Brandon Reed, 23, has been charged with misdemeanor DUI after a crash in Chicago that left one female passenger dead and a 4-year-old boy injured. Reed was also ticketed for driving on a revoked license.
Reed was traveling on the 1600 block of West Harrison Street in Chicago when his vehicle crashed into a pole. Passenger Angeline De-Leon, 25, was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. The 4-year-old boy was taken to Stroger Hospital after going into shock. Reed was also taken to the hospital in critical condition.
