Aurora Man Facing DUI After Hitting Three Teens

Car was speeding, jumped curb

A suburban Chicago man faces aggravated drunk driving after authorities say his vehicle jumped a curb and hit three teenagers.

Police allege 37-year-old Uriel Soto-Castro was speeding in his Thunderbird Friday when he ran a stop sign and hit three teenagers.

The two girls and boy were standing on a snowy area off the road. They're being treated for non-life threatening injuries at area hospitals.

Authorities say the Aurora man continued driving until he struck a truck parked in a driveway and tried to flee on foot. The truck's driver and two others caught Soto-Castro until police arrived.

Police say the driver was also charged with not having a driver's license. He and his 31-year-old passenger weren't hurt. It was immediately unclear if Soto-Castro has an attorney.
