A man has been charged with DUI for a crash that killed his passenger and injured two other people Thursday night in north suburban Waukegan.
Shortly before 9 p.m., 27-year-old Max Barraza was driving a pickup west on Washington Street near Green Bay Road at a high speed when the truck rear-ended another westbound vehicle, according to a statement from Waukegan police. That second vehicle then spun into the eastbound lanes and hit a third vehicle.
A passenger in the pickup truck, identified as Adrian Biedzinski, 35, of Round Lake Beach, was trapped in the truck after the accident. He died at the accident scene.
The two occupants who were in the vehicle that was rear-ended were taken to the hospital for treatment of accident injuries that were considered to be “minor” in nature. No one else was injured in the crash.
