An Orland Park man is facing DUI charges after crashing a minivan with his 8-year-old daughter in Palos Park early Sunday, according to police.
At 12:35 a.m. Sunday, a Palos Park police officer saw 43-year-old Saulius Tamavicius drive a dark-colored minivan into a construction barricade near the 12500 block of LaGrange Road, a statement from Palos Park police said.
