Crash victims' relatives back new DUI law

July 28, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Erick Lagunas and Miguel Flores were killed in an accident two years ago. The driver of the other car, Chicago police officer John Ardelean, was not given a sobriety test at the scene.

A judge later threw out DUI and reckless homicide charges ruling the officer was arrested without probable cause.

Right now, drivers involved in serious accidents are only required to take a breathalyzer test if the officer suspects the motorist is under the influence.
