A 19-year-old Naperville man is facing numerous charges after Lisle police said he drunkenly crashed a car Saturday, injuring two people, and fled the scene.

Authorities said the crash happened just after 7 p.m. Saturday as Carlos Bravo-Diaz was headed eastbound on Ogden Avenue and crashed his car into another vehicle near the intersection of Naper Boulevard and Ogden in Naperville.


From there, Bravo-Diaz continued driving east, police said, eventually crossing into the westbound lanes of Ogden near Karns Road in Lisle where he collided with another vehicle, injuring two people. Police officials said Bravo-Diaz's car was disabled and he tried to flee on foot when another person who witnessed the crash ran after the five-foot, 130-pound Bravo-Diaz and subdued him until police arrived.

Bravo-Diaz is charged with aggravated driving under the influence, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, failure to give aid, driving without a valid license, unlawful consumption of alcohol by a minor, driving without insurance and driving in the wrong lane, according to Lisle police.

Lisle police officials said the two people injured were transported to a hospital where they were treated and released.

Bravo-Diaz is being held at the DuPage County jail in lieu of $3,000 bond.

However, if Bravo-Diaz is released, he will be turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody, according to the DuPage County sheriff's office website.
