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.

The officer determined Tamavicius was “impaired” and found his 8-year-old daughter inside the van, police said. She was not hurt.

He is charged with DUI and endangering the life of a child, police said. His blood-alcohol level was .19, about 21/2 times the legal limit.

Bail information was not immediately available.
