A Chicago man has been charged in the car accident that left 18-year-old Veronica Rojas and 17-year-old Natalie Stygar dead in Wilmette Monday.

Szymon Zawadzki, 20, was charged with two counts of reckless homicide, four counts of aggravated driving under the influence, improper lane usage, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and driving without insurance.

Zawadzki was driving the black Nissan Maxima that swerved off the road around 2:30 a.m. Monday, hitting a fire hydrant and a tree. He was hospitalized with no life threatening injuries. The two other passengers in the car were also taken to the hospital, one with critical injuries. The other was released.

Zawadzki will appear in court on July 13 in Skokie.
