Man gets probation for crash that killed unborn child on NW Side

- A man has been sentenced to 30 months probation for a crash that seriously injured a woman and killed her unborn baby last year in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

Ramon Marin, 24, of the 3000 block of North Natoma pleaded guilty to one count of reckless homicide before Judge Earl Hoffenberg during a Friday hearing at the Skokie courthouse, according to Cook County court records.

About 9:30 p.m. Aug. 12, 2015, Marin was driving a Honda Accord westbound in the 6000 block of West Fullerton when his vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and struck a 21-year-old woman’s parked Mazda Protege, authorities said at the time.

The crash made the Mazda jump the curb and strike a tree, authorities said.

The woman and Marin were taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, authorities said. The woman was in serious condition, and her unborn child was pronounced dead at 12:10 a.m. the next day.

Marin’s condition was stabilized.

Judge Hoffenberg sentenced Natoma to 30 months probation Friday and ordered him to pay $674, according to court records.
