A driver involved in a crash that killed three members of an Arlington Heights family last month should have had his license revoked in 2013, according to a report in the Arlington Heights Post.

Piotr Rog, 21, was speeding at an estimated 100 mph on Northwest Highway in Des Plaines when his Mercedes-Benz slammed into a Chevy Impala carrying Kevin and Anita Crawford and their daughter Kirsten, authorities have said. Rog also died in the collision.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

Rog had his license suspended three times for speeding, but a ticket issued in Cook County for a stop sign violation that would have triggered a revocation was never reported to the Illinois secretary of state's office, according to the report.

The unreported ticket was discovered earlier this month after media inquires into Rog's driving records, secretary of state's office spokesman David Druker told the newspaper.
