Riverside, IL - Man Arrested For DUI Crash Near Brookfield Zoo

Riverside, IL (December 9, 2019) - A California man was taken into custody on felony DUI charges on Friday, December 6th. The man, identified as James J. Nagel, 64, of Arleta, California, injured a 34-year-old woman and her 2-year-old daughter near Brookfield Zoo. The woman and child were transported to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Illinois with serious injuries. 

Authorities in Riverside responded to the crash when they were notified of another incident near Wabaunsee Road. There they found Nagel, incoherent behind the wheel after crashing into another vehicle. Nagel was injured and taken to Loyola.

Nagel has a prior history of felony DUI charges. Local law enforcement is currently investigating these incidents.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Illinois Drunk Driving Accidents

Thumbnail image for pfmstock7-168.jpgBeing injured by a drunk driver is a traumatic experience. Intoxicated motorists are acting with extreme negligence when they get behind the wheel. Statistics show that nearly all American citizens will be involved in a DUI crash at least once during their lifetime.

Despite increased awareness of the risks of drunk driving, DUI crashes are far too common. It is believed that 28 percent of all traffic fatalities are the result of a drunk driver. Injured victims can contact an Illinois car crash lawyer to protect their legal rights.
