Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS - Luke Wilusz

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.
