A man from Sandwich is in big trouble for allegedly causing a crash that seriously injured a motorcyclist.

According to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, 40-year-old David Brown of Sandwich was serving all over the road north of Somonauk Saturday morning when he forced two people on motorcycles to lay their bikes down on the road. Brown is accused hitting 32-year-old Douglas Koehler of Naperville and then leaving the scene.

Koehler was taken to Valley West Hospital before being flown to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. Brown was later tracked down at his home in Sandwich and arrested for aggravated DUI, leaving the scene of an injury accident, reckless driving, driving with a revoked license, and failing to report an accident to police.

He was taken to the DeKalb County Jail.
