A Joliet man was charged after an accident Wednesday afternoon in Homer Glen that sent five people — including four children — to areI am a hospitals.
Daniel Arreola-Rosales, 26, 1112 Parkwood Drive, was charged with driving without a license and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, Will County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.
Arreola-Rosales was driving a Chevy TrailBlazer westbound on Hadley Road about 3:45 p.m. when he rear-ended a Mazda that was stopped for a school bus, Hoffmeyer said. He reportedly told deputies the sun blocked his view.
The Mazda then struck a Ford Escape, which was directly behind the school bus. The bus was not involved, Hoffmeyer said.
Four of the six children in Arreola-Rosales’ vehicle were taken to Palos Community Hospital with minor injuries, she said.
The Mazda driver was taken to Silver Cross Hospital with a head injury, possibly a concussion, and the driver of the Ford Escape was unharmed, Hoffmeyer said.
