Wesley Rodgers, 32, faces charges including three counts of felony aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol resulting in death.
Police said Rodgers was dirving a vehicle that crashed into several parked vehicles in the 14300-block of Harrison Avenue around 3:15 a.m. on Dec. 15, 2016. Rodgers suffered minor injuries and was released from Christ Hospital several hours after being admitted, police said.
Three female passengers in the car were killed. The Cook County medical examiner's office says 26-year-old Jaquira L. Brown of Chicago, 22-year-old LaNae Riley of Chicago and 29-year-old Tondalia Dubose of Minneapolis died in the crash. A fourth female passenger was hospitalized in critical condition.
Bond was set at $500,000. Rodgers posted the required 10 percent of the bond and is currently free on bond and awaiting trial, police said.
