DUI car accident leads to 2 wrongful deaths in Naperville

An early morning crash over the weekend left two men in their early twenties dead while the driver was able to swim to safety. Preliminary investigations indicate a 2007 Chevy Impala was driving on Aurora Avenue and Eagle Street where the vehicle left the roadway. The Impala then crashed through a fence, traveled down an embankment and plunged into a Naperville Park District quarry lagoon, located across the street from the Naperville Municipal center. The two victims were unable to escape the vehicle and drowned.

The driver of the vehicle was arrested after being released from Edward Hospital and charged with four counts of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol causing the death of another. The driver was also charged with two counts of reckless homicide.

Naperville Police Department's Traffic Unit responded to the scene knocking down chain-link fences and securing the perimeter to preserve any evidence.   Further investigation into the accident is still pending at this time.

Unfortunately, DUI related fatalities are one of the leading causes of traffic deaths in Illinois. In 2012, Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD) reported 321 alcohol related traffic deaths in Illinois. This represented 34% of all total traffic deaths, an increase of 15% from 2011.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
