Montgomery man charged with DUI in Sugar Grove crash

SUGAR GROVE – A 22-year-old Montgomery man was charged with driving under the influence Wednesday, in a crash that wrecked his 2004 Chevrolet Aveo.

Police said Samuel Chamberlain, 22, of Creve Court in Montgomery, lost control of the car at 3:25 p.m. Wednesday while traveling east on Galena Boulevard at Route 56 in Sugar Grove. Police said Chamberlain struck a traffic signal pole.

Sugar Grove police investigator John Sizer said he could not reveal Chamberlain's blood-alcohol level, "but it was well in excess of the limit." The Illinois limit is .08. Police said Chamberlain was taken to Presence Mercy Medical Center in Aurora for injuries that were not life-threatening, and Sizer said Chamberlain was expected to be released from the hospital Thursday.

Chamberlain was charged with DUI, illegal transportation of alcohol and driving too fast for conditions. Sizer noted that there was heavy rain falling at the time, and that "there was no evidence he tried to stop." Sizer said no other charges were planned.

Chamberlain was given a court date of May 16.
