A Chicago man was charged Sunday with aggravated driving under the influence following a deadly crash that killed two women and left another one injured, according to Illinois State Police Sergeant Michael Dolis.

A scheduled Monday bond hearing for Miguel Rico, 20, was postponed.

Authorities said Rico was driving a minivan that entered the Eisenhower Expressway going west on the eastbound lanes when he struck a 2001 blue Ford with three woman inside.

Briana Resto, 19, of North Lake, and Monica Hernandez, 20, of Maywood, were killed in the crash, according to Illinois State Police.

Police said Resto was the driver of the Ford.

Brittney Mouzon, 20, of Maywood, was also in the car and was taken to an area hospital for treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Rico, of the 2400 block of South Christiana, and his sole passenger, Jose Moreno, 20, were also taken to area hospitals for treatment.

Rico was wanted on a warrant. In 2011, he violated his probation in a drug possession case. On Sunday, a judge ordered Rico held without bond in that case, court records show.
