DUI charges after SUV slams into barbershop, tattoo parlor
A West Side man has been charged with DUI after allegedly crashing an SUV into a tattoo parlor and a barbershop early Thursday in west suburban Oak Park.
Larell Jackson, 25, was driving a 2002 GMC Yukon west about 2:15 a.m. when it left the road in the 200 block of Chicago Avenue, according to a statement from Oak Park police. Three passengers were inside the SUV with him.
The Yukon then hit a light pole before slamming into the two storefronts, police said. The crash “damaged the support structure and caused the brick facade to collapse onto the vehicle.”
Extensive damage could be seen to the fronts of Blind Creations tattoo parlor, 250oe Chicago Ave., and Barber’s Gallery barbershop, 252 Chicago Ave. Police said all utilities were shut off and village officials were assessing the buildings’ structural integrity.
