On October 27, one home had a visit from an unusual renovating crew when a Bolingbrook man drove drunk and crashed his van through a home’s garage wall. A few streets away, he first crashed into a parked car. The driver faces charges for driving under the influence, and he was cited for improper lane usage, driving too fast for conditions, and operating an uninsured motor vehicle. The Chicago Tribune reported this unusual story to the public.
Michael D. Karwoske, 36, crashed his Chrysler van into a home around 3:24 a.m., Lt. Mike Rompa from Bolingbrook Police said. Public records indicate that Karwoske resides close by. The police officers who came to the scene of the accident, responding to a call about a vehicle striking a house, found Karwoske standing outside the home after parking his van in the garage through a side wall of the house.
Police believe Karwoske was headed north in the 500 block of Thomas Road when his van hit a parked car, which incidentally sent the van down the road to a driveway of a home, across the lawn and through the wall.
Karwoske was taken to Advocate Bolingbrook Hospital for evaluation after the crash.
According to Rompa, the police investigation is still ongoing.
