A Chicago woman is charged with drunken driving in connection with a four-car crash that killed a preschooler.

Laticia Medel, 24, faces additional felony charges, including speeding and driving without a license.

Police say a 4-year-old boy and a 2-year-old boy were passengers in Medel's car when it started a chain-reaction crash near Fullerton Avenue at Kilbourn Avenue. Johnathan Bahena, 4, was killed in the accident early Sunday morning.

Medel is scheduled to appear in bond court later Tuesday.
