A 59-year-old Tinley Park man has been charged with aggravated DUI after allegedly causing a fatal crash along Interstate 80 Sunday.

State police say Robert Caputo's blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit when he tried to pass on the shoulder.

State troopers say Caputo hit a Chevy Malibu, sending it into the ditch where it caught fire. The driver of the Malibu was killed.

Caputo also reportedly hit a Dodge Ram pickup but nobody inside was injured.

The accident forced I-80 to be shut down in both directions Sunday evening.
