A Chicago man has been charged with reckless homicide and aggravated DUI in connection with a fatal crash that killed his girlfriend Saturday night on the West Side.

Andrew Jones, 33, was the driver in the crash that killed his girlfriend, Chantelle Jones, 26, of Cicero, Saturday morning.

Andrew Jones faces felony charges of aggravated DUI resulting in death, reckless homicide, and misdemeanor charges of driving on a suspended license and driving a vehicle without insurance, according to police News Affairs.

Chantelle Jones was a passenger in the 1998 4-door Saturn traveling southbound about 2:15 a.m. when the driver lost control and hit a viaduct in the 1600 block of South Western Avenue, Chicago police said.

The driver is scheduled to appear in bond court Monday.
