Guadalupe Romero, 27, of Rolling Meadows has been charged with felony child endangerment and aggravated battery after allegedly running her vehicle into her husband’s SUV intentionally on Sunday.
Romero was driving her three children when she spotted her husband, Alfonso Fiero, 35, driving with a female passenger, according to the Daily Herald. Romero then repeatedly ran her 2004 Jeep Liberty into her husband’s 2002 Ford Explorer from behind, authorities said.
Romero’s children -- aged 2, 5, and 8 -- were taken to Northwest Community Hospital and released. They are currently in the care of an uncle, the Daily Herald reported.
The 34-year-old Rolling Meadows woman who was riding in Fiero’s vehicle suffered serious injuries after the passenger side in which she was sitting struck a tree during the crash.
She was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge and was discharged on Wednesday.
Fiero was charged with misdemeanor DUI after the crash. Romero faces felony charges of aggravated battery, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and three counts of endangering a child. If convicted, could receive a maximum sentence of two to five years in prison with possible probation.
She is scheduled to appear in court on July 7. Read the full Daily Herald story here.
