Wednesday, March 13, 2013 —A 19-year-old Burr Ridge man who had a blood alcohol content three times the legal limit was charged Wednesday afternoon with aggravated DUI for a fatal vehicle crash in Palos Township, Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said.

About 3:10 a.m. Tuesday, March 12, a 2002 GMC Denali was reportedly traveling southbound in the northbound lane of La Grange Road when it struck, head-on, a 2002 Nissan Sentra near 105th Street.

The driver of the Sentra, a 64-year-old man from Orland Park who was going to work, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead.

The 19-year-old driver of the Denali, Nicholas Puccinelli, was also taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center for treatment of his injuries. Cook County Sheriff’s Police arrested Puccinelli at the hospital.
