Joliet Police Officer Erin Zilka has been charged with DUI in a deadly crash that killed off-duty Berwyn police Officer Charles Schauer Sunday in Plainfield.

Joliet police officer Erin L. Zilka, 35, has been charged with a misdemeanor count of Driving Under the Influence and Driving Too Fast for Conditions after a crash about 6:00 a.m. Sunday January 19, 2020 on southbound Interstate 55, just north of US 30 near Plainfield, Illinois in Will County. Zilka’s Dodge Durango was driven into a stationary Hino box truck that was blocking two right lanes of traffic following a previous DUI crash with a 2006 Nissan Titan pickup truck, according to the Illinois State Police.

Her passenger, Charles Schauer, 33, a 10-year veteran with Berwyn Police Department, was pronounced dead on the scene. Zilka was transported to a hospital with injuries that were initially believed to be non-life-threatening life.

Three lanes on I-55 were shut down until 10:20 a.m. Sunday as Illinois State Police troopers investigated the crash, according to the Illinois State Police.

Joliet Police Department reported that they have begun an internal investigation into the incident.

Marin’s Nissan Titan pickup truck hit the left side of a 2008 Hino Box truck driven by a 44-year-old man, Illinois State Police said. Marin ran from the scene, and was found a short distance away from the crash scene, where Illinois State Police troopers took him into custody. Marin’s booking origin was ISP District 5.
