AURORA (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A man is facing DUI charges after allegedly crashing into a police car Monday night in west suburban Aurora.
John C. Lundy, 48, was driving a white 2009 Dodge Van near Lake and Plum streets in Aurora at 8:44 p.m. when the van hit the squad car, according to a statement from Aurora police.
The squad car had been blocking traffic after a hit-and-run crash about an hour earlier at the same intersection, which left an 8-year-old boy dead and his grandfather injured, police said.
Lundy, who lives in Aurora, drove off after hitting the police car but was arrested a few blocks away, police said.
He has been charged with two felony counts of aggravated DUI, a felony count of driving while license revoked and misdemeanor counts of DUI, operating an uninsured vehicle, failure to yield to an emergency vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident, according to police.
Lundy was ordered held at the Kane County Adult Justice Center on $15,000 bail, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office. His next court date was set for April 3.
