Waukegan firefighter Gregg Paiser, 36, was injured in a two-car crash allegedly caused by a 31-year-old Kenosha man driving under the influence.
According to Fire Chief Dan Young, Paiser suffered a broken femur and is scheduled for surgery at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Milwaukee.
The police report says Paiser was traveling northbound on 39th Street, also known as Lewis Avenue in Lake County, IL, when his vehicle approached a rise in the roadway. Justin Peet was driving his 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo southbound when he passed two cars in a no-passing zone at a high rate of speed and collided head-on with Paiser.
Peet had to be extricated from the car and was flown to Froedtert to be treated for two broken legs. Peets passenger also suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Peet is expected to be charged with two counts of causing injury by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle and one count of reckless driving causing bodily harm.
