Tinley Park man charged in fatal I-80 crash

September 13, 2010 (NEW LENOX, Ill.)

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.
