Dolton man held on $500K in fatal crash on Bishop Ford

A 24-year-old Dolton man was ordered held today on $500,000 bail in a fatal crash early Sunday on the Bishop Ford Expressway.
Prosecutors said that at about 3:27 a.m. Sunday, Travis Berry was driving a 1994 blue Lincoln Town Car on Interstate 94 near 111th Street.
A witness, also driving on I-94, said Berry was traveling at a high rate of speed and approached him from behind. The witness changed lanes and allowed Berry to pass,
Soon after, Berry's vehicle crashed into the back of a gold 2001 Pontiac Grand Am, prosecutors said. The impact of the collision caused both vehicles to spin out of control and the Pontiac landed facing northbound.
Jonell Barlow, 27, and his girlfriend were trapped inside the Grand Am and had to be extricated by fire officials. Rescuers could see Barlow's hands sticking up from the debris.
Berry got out of his car and walked to victim's car where he met the witness and told the witness he had been driving the blue Lincoln. The witness said he could smell alcohol coming from Berry.
Berry tried to leave the scene by walking up an exit ramp at 111th Street, but another witness and an Illinois Department of Transportation worker brought him back to the scene and waited for police.
The second witness said Berry's speech was slurred, his eyes were red and there was a smell of alcohol.
Barlow, of the 1800 block of Dylane Drive in Griffith, Ind., was pronounced dead at the scene. His girlfriend was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where she was treated for blunt force trauma to the head, a bruised lung and bleeding on the brain.
Berry was taken to Roseland Community Hospital where his blood alcohol registered at .188; the legal limit is .08. He also tested positive for marijuana.
Berry previously was sentenced to court supervision in 2009 and 2011 for driving on a suspended license, according to prosecutors. He received supervision for illegal transportation of alcohol in 2011.
