McHenry man involved in February crash charged with DUI

The driver of a car involved in a February crash in unincorporated Cary was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after an investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.

Gregory Miller, 57, of McHenry also was charged with driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08% or more and failing to reduce speed to avoid a crash.

He was given a notice to appear for the charges and will be assigned an upcoming court date in Courtroom C-404 at the Lake County circuit court in Waukegan.

The sheriff’s office’s traffic crash investigators reviewed the reports and evidence from the crash with the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office on Thursday.

Lake County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 10:50 p.m. Feb. 28 to West Fox River Road and West Short Street near Cary for a traffic crash with injuries.

When deputies arrived, they found a 2013 Toyota Highlander had struck a tree. The Toyota sustained significant damage, and Miller was trapped inside the vehicle, according to a news release.

A preliminary investigation showed Miller was traveling east on Fox River Road when his vehicle left the road. Because of the damage to the vehicle, it took more than an hour for officials to free Miller, according to the release.
