Chicago Man Charged With DUI in Fatal Crash That Killed Area Teacher


A 25-year-old Chicago man has been charged with DUI and other offenses after a crash in Mattoon Saturday night that killed a Springfield woman.

 

40-year-old Amy Thomas was a special education teacher at Sherman Elementary School.

 

Thomas was in one of several cars stopped at a red light on Illinois Route 16 in Mattoon when they were struck by a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed.

 

Authorities say 25-year-old Michael Fogarty may have been going 70 miles an hour, and did not stop or slow down before crashing into the cars.
