BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A man has been charged with aggravated DUI after a rollover crash killed his 4-year-old son and critically injured his two other young children early Sunday in southwest suburban Bolingbrook.

Shannard M. L. Dyer, 29, of Romeoville was driving with his sons in a 2012 Dodge Journey about 2 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-55, just west of I-355, when the vehicle struck a median wall and rolled over, police said.

Taylor Dyer, 4, was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene, according to Illinois State Police and the Will County Coroner’s office.

The other sons, ages 2 and 7, were listed in critical condition Monday at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, police said.

Shannard Dyer was taken into custody Monday after he was released from Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, authorities said.

He faces a felony charge of aggravated DUI, and was also cited for driving too fast for conditions, state police said.

    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
