CHICAGO — A 29-year-old woman has been charged with DUI after being involved in a fatal car crash on Lake Shore Drive last week, police said.

At 1:16 a.m. Friday, a car was driving south in the 700 block of South Lake Shore Drive when a northbound car driven by Chyna Bell tried to make a left turn onto East Balbo Drive, police said. The car going south hit Bell's car, flipping it over.

A 27-year-old man inside Bell's car was taken to Northwestern Hospital and pronounced dead, police said. Bell was taken to Northwestern Hospital in serious condition and a 28-year-old man in the car was taken to Stroger Hospital in critical condition.

The driver of the car going south was not injured and refused medical attention, police said.

Bell, of the 7500 block of South Kingston Avenue, has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and was ticketed for driving without insurance and improper left turn, police said.

Bell's bond was set at $3,000, according to police records. She was scheduled to appear in court on April 25.

An investigation into the crash was ongoing, police said.
