Naperville Woman Charged With Drunk Driving In Four-Vehicle Crash

CHICAGO (STMW) -- A Naperville woman is free on bond and awaiting trial, after she allegedly triggered a four-vehicle traffic crash late Thursday night near Neuqua Valley High School while drunk.

Monica F. Bull, 43, lives on the 3500 block of Redwing Court, in Naperville's Tall Grass neighborhood. Written Naperville police reports showed she is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident/driving too fast for conditions.

At least one person was injured during the crash. It occurred about 11:18 p.m. Thursday at the intersection of 95th Street and Wildcat Way, across the street from the Neuqua Valley campus.

Naperville police and fire officials on Friday did not immediately provide details of the crash, which occurred in 95th Street's two westbound lanes.

Firefighters had to extricate one motorist from a small, black, two-door Honda, which was totally ruined in the crash.

Paramedics took the driver to the emergency room of Edward Hospital in Naperville for treatment, after the motorist's head struck and shattered part of the car's driver-side windshield. The extent of the injury could not be learned Friday.

The other vehicles involved in the crash were an unidentified white car, a four-door Hyundai Sonata Hybrid and a white Lexus sport utility vehicle. It was not known which belonged to Bull.

It also could not be learned whether all four motorists were driving by themselves at the time, or if some or all of them were traveling with passengers.

A portion of 95th Street was closed to traffic while tow trucks removed the Honda, Hyundai and Lexus from the scene. The fourth car suffered minor damage and was driven away by its owner.

Police on Friday were reportedly continuing their investigation into the crash.

An examination of court documents revealed Bull has received two traffic tickets, but has no criminal record in Will, DuPage and Kane counties.
