A former City of Chicago employee has pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI after he crashed a truck into a crowd of pedestrians.

The accident happened last May at Cedar and Rush on the Near North Side.

Dwight Washington was working for the Department of Streets and Sanitation when the truck he was driving jumped a curb.

Among the seven people hurt in the crash was a nanny named Jennifer Anton, who was able to push the child she was caring for to safety.

Prosecutors said Washington's blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.
