Man Responsible for Crestwood Car Accident that Killed Chicago Man and Injured Several Others Had Previous Conviction for Reckless Homicide

ABC7 Chicago is reporting that the widow of a man who died last Thursday in a Crestwood multi-car crash is furious that the driver responsible for causing the deadly traffic collision was a parolee who already had a conviction for reckless homicide. Marian Anderson’s husband, Frederick Anderson, was 55.

On Sunday, Bruce Dozier again was charged with reckless homicide, in addition to aggravated driving under the influence of drugs, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, and failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. Eight vehicles were involved in the chain-reaction collision on Cicero Avenue.

The deadly Chicago suburb car accident occurred early in the morning. His wife, Marion says she saw footage of the deadly auto crash on TV but didn’t know that her husband was involved in the collision until she received a call from his office.

Police say that Anderson died instantly.

Dozier, who has paroled in 2008 after serving two of his six-year prison sentence, received his first conviction for reckless homicide when he was involved in an auto accident that killed a 28-year-old driver. Anderson’s family is angry that Dozier was let out of jail early.
