Father Accused Of Driving Drunk In Chicago Expressway Crash That Killed His Son

Posted by wlpo on December 26, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – A Texas man is in jail facing the idea that he’s blamed for killing his 4-year old son.

A wreck on the Dan Ryan Expressway Sunday killed the preschooler after he was thrown through the back window of a Ford Expedition. The boy wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. His dad, 46-year-old Franklin Jackson is charged with reckless homicide and aggravated driving under the influence.

Three other children – a 1-year-old, a 2-year-old old and a 3-month old – weren’t injured.
