Man gets 4 years in DUI crash

WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man who police said drove drunk and caused a crash that killed his passenger was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison.

Enrique Hernandez, 24, pleaded guilty in September to aggravated driving under the influence, a Class 2 felony.

Police said Hernandez had a blood-alcohol content of more than 0.20 percent, more than twice the 0.08 legal limit, when he crashed a 2005 Acura TL on Aug. 16, 2009. He was driving north on Raffel Road near Charles Road, ran a stop sign, veered off the road and crashed into trees at 4:41 a.m., police said.

His passenger, 22-year-old Carlos D. Ramon-Cabrera of Woodstock, was pronounced dead at the scene.
