North Aurora man charged with DUI after Bartlett crash

A North Aurora man has been charged with aggravated drunken driving and related crimes after a collision Tuesday in Bartlett.

Joshua O. Johnson, 32, was charged with two felony counts of aggravated driving under the influence, as well as misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or more, and driving while license revoked, authorities said. He also was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and disobeying a traffic control device, authorities said.

Bartlett police and the Bartlett Fire Protection District responded about 7 p.m. Tuesday to the intersection of Lake Street and Oak Avenue to investigate a crash.

Police said Johnson was traveling east on Lake Street in a Subaru Crosstrek when he a disobeyed the traffic control device at Oak Avenue. His vehicle struck a Chevrolet Sonic attempting to turn left onto westbound Lake Street from Oak Avenue. The driver of the Sonic suffered injuries that do not appear to be life-threatening and was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates.

Johnson's bail was set at $50,000 Wednesday, meaning he must post 10% to be released pending trial. On Friday, he was still listed as being in custody, with a next scheduled court date of April 9.
