The driver of the 2012 Accord, a 56-year-old man from Wilmette, had serious injuries and was taken to Glenbrook Hospital in Glenview. He has since been released. Orczyk was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for treatment and remains in the hospital. The Subaru driver, a 66-year-old man from Niles, declined medical assistance.

Orczyk has two prior DUI convictions in Cook County from 2000 and 2006.
