CHICAGO (AP) — A man who allegedly crashed into a Chicago bus shelter, fatally injuring a woman who was run over twice, has been charged with reckless homicide.
A judge set 42-year-old Errol Brice’s bail at $50,000 during a Tuesday hearing.
Police say Brice’s sport-utility vehicle crashed into a bus shelter Saturday night on Chicago’s South Side, pinning 59-year-old Beverly Barney beneath the vehicle.
Brice allegedly put the SUV in reverse and then drove forward over Barney a second time before fleeing.
She was pronounced dead at a hospital. A second woman also injured in the crash remains hospitalized in stable condition.
Brice’s attorney, Shay Allen, tells the Chicago Sun-Times “it’s always horrible when a life is lost,” but he noted that the charge his client faces reflected that the crash wasn’t intentional.
