Sorry missed this news story, thanks to the viewers who alerted DSLC News to this news story...SAD IRONY HERE... Just days after a Cook County Correctional Officer was fatally struck by a driver with a long history of DUI's and a revoked drivers license, a Cook County Sheriff Deputy has been charged in a fatal DUI accident.
The Cook County sheriff’s deputy charged with felony DUI for a fatal accident Sunday in Franklin Park reportedly told arresting officers, “Oh God, I hope I didn’t kill this guy.”
Jamie T. O’Malley, 37, of Franklin Park is charged with aggravated DUI for striking and killing Marcial Marias-Quevedo on Mannheim Road in Franklin Park at 1:43 a.m. Sunday, authorities said.
O’Malley, a sheriff’s deputy, stood before Judge Pamela Leeming during his bond hearing Wednesday at the Maywood courthouse wearing a blue ”Fighting Irish” T-shirt and beltless khaki shorts. His hands shook increasingly as he held up his shorts from behind.
Marias-Quevedo, 41, of Franklin Park suffered “severe injuries to his left rib cage,” which caused severe internal bleeding, Assistant State’s Attorney Kathy Van Kampen said. Marias-Quevedo was later pronounced dead at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood.
Police found O’Malley’s pickup truck “in the middle of the road” with front-end damage and hood damage.
Van Kampen said O’Malley told police, “Oh God, I hope I didn’t kill this guy.”
