32 year old Jesse Bradley stepped out of his apartment for a late-night snack, from just around the corner, when an inebriated Bianca Garcia, driving a Jeep Liberty, was speeding South. Seeing Bradley she swerved as much as she could, but her car rammed into him in a crosswalk. She sped away, little knowing that her reckless driving had snuffed out a young life.

After hitting Bradley, she drove down a one-way street. Patrolling Police alarmed by smoke rising from the engine and that the vehicle was showing signs of heavy frontal damage and was also missing one headlight, pulled the vehicle over.

The Police said that Garcia refused to take a breath test and a field sobriety test. She also initially declined medical attention, but both she, and her co-passenger were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for treatment. Her blood alcohol level was double the legal limit when she struck and killed Bradley.


Bradley was taken to Northwestern and was declared dead there at 2:54 a.m. The accident took place 1100 block of North LaSalle about 2:30 a.m., on Saturday.

The police said that 21 year Bianca Garcia was charged with “felony aggravated DUI, misdemeanor DUI and misdemeanor reckless driving, She was also cited for failure to have a driver’s license, insurance and driving the wrong way on a one-way street.”

Bianca had a past history of reckless driving and had been pulled over at least 6 times over the last five years. She was involved in a drunken driving case in 2008, along with two under aged friends, who the police said, were so drunk that they had to be taken to Hospital for suspected alcohol poisoning.

After the hearing Garcia’s attorney, John Carbon, told reporters that Garcia was a student and also works full time. “She’s distraught,” he said about his client. “She is very upset about what occurred.”

Bradley’s mother and sister, sat holding each other, listening to Judge Laura M. Sullivan set her bail at $400,000. Bradley’s sister said, “It’s just bizarre. It really shows you how life can change in an instant.” “He was healthy. He was living. And he died. He should not have died at 32.”

Northwestern law student, Bradley was keen on pursuing a career in corporate law, after his current studies, due to be over this summer.

Bradley’s deeply pained mother said that not much information had been provided to her and her daughter about the accident.

“He was a wonderful son. He was not supposed to be taken away, not by somebody who was driving too fast and drinking,” his mother said. “He didn’t stand a chance … He was just going to get something to eat across the street.”
