A Geneva woman has been charged with aggravated driving under the influence of an intoxicating compound in connection with a May automobile crash that severely injured her passenger.
The felony charge was filed July 13 against Nicole K. Wiesner, 20, of the 800 block of Britta Lane, according to police and court records.
Geneva police declined to specify what compounds she ingested.
She had previously been charged with failure to yield at a stop sign.
Wiesner was driving a Chevrolet Cavalier at 10:29 a.m. May 4 westbound on Dodson Street. Police say she failed to stop at the T-intersection at Route 25, crossed the state route and hit a split-rail fence and a group of trees. Her passenger told police that Wiesner had fallen asleep.
Wiesner was taken to Provena Mercy Medical Center in Aurora. The passenger was flown to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital's trauma center in Downers Grove.
Wiesner turned herself in to Geneva police Wednesday, posted $500 bond and was released. She is due in Kane County court at 9 a.m. Aug. 9.
On May 16, Wiesner was in a one-vehicle crash on Kirk Road in Geneva. She drove off the road and became stuck in a field. According to the accident report, Wiesner told police she had bent down to adjust a shoe, and lost control. She was charged with driving while her license was suspended.
On June 22, Wiesner was charged by Geneva police with illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor, at her home.
She has convictions in 2011 in Kane County for speeding and improper passing on the left.
In 2010, she received court supervision on Batavia charges of disorderly conduct and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.
