Wrong-way driver crash victim funeral

A DePaul University student killed in a wrong-way crash on Lake Shore Drive was laid to rest.

The funeral for 27-year-old Fabian Torres took place Friday.

Torres and his friend, Joaquin Garcia, were in an SUV on southbound Lake Shore, when a wrong-way driver hit their vehicle between Belmont and Diversey Parkway last Friday.

Police identified that wrong-way driver as North Chicago police officer, Terrell Garrett.

He was off-duty at the time.

Garrett has been charged with reckless homicide and DUI.
