Glenview Man Charged With DUI After Hitting Two Cars

Jerzy Orczyk's blood alcohol content was four times the legal limit during the accident, the 'Daily Herald' reports.

Jerzy Orczyk, 60, of Glenview, was arrested by Cook County sheriff's police on Sunday after crashing into two cars and seriously injuring one driver, a 56-year-old man from Wilmette, the Daily Herald reports.

Orczyk's blood alcohol content was more than five times the legal limit when he drove through a red light, struck a car, continued driving south in northbound lanes, struck another car, then kept going in the wrong lanes until hitting a sign and stopping in a ditch in unincorporated Maine Township, the Daily Herald reports.

Police charged Orczyk with one count of aggravated DUI resulting in great bodily harm, aggravated DUI and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in injury or great bodily harm, the Niles Herald-Spectator reports.

The Glenview man had previous DUI convictions from 2000 and 2006, and is being held on a $35,000 bond for Sunday's crash, the Glenview Announcements reports.

According to United Van Lines, people are leaving Illinois more than any other state. We are leaving too. As more and more businesses leave this nightmare bureacracy, it will depend more and more on the taxes of the affluent north shore communities. You can see what an inefficient mess Glenview is and that's just one little town. About the only thing they're good at is overpaying themselves. If you stick around here, be prepared to give up seventy percent of your income and assets to people who will crawl through your windows and wreck your neighborhoods with the assistance from the mopes in the village hall.

@Chris, I hear Detroit is a great city to move to....and housing is cheap.

Detroit? The model city of government subsidized everything? No thanks. Too cold, too broke, too taxed and too late.
