A 20-year-old man is free on bond and awaiting trial in two jurisdictions, after being accused of causing two traffic crashes over a five-day period in Naperville and Aurora, both times while under the influence of narcotics.

Plainfield resident Adrian A. Olvera faces trial in Kane County Circuit Court and DuPage County Circuit Court on charges of driving under the influence of drugs, according to court records.

Olvera was arrested June 3 in Aurora and June 7 in Naperville. He allegedly caused two crashes, including one in which his girlfriend and another woman suffered minor injuries.

City of Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli confirmed the first incident occurred at 7:43 p.m. June 3 at Bilter Road and Farnsworth Avenue. Olvera at the time was driving a silver, 2011 Dodge Ram and in the company of two passengers, Ferrelli said.

Olvera was northbound on Farnsworth Avenue when he attempted to make a U-turn in the intersection. Ferrelli said he “ended up hitting a curb, lost control of his vehicle and hit the driver-side door” of a 2013 Honda CRV being driven by a 47-year-old woman from St. Charles, who had been traveling behind him.

Ferrelli said Olvera “then allegedly pulled into a parking lot, where he and his two passengers — a 26-year-old female from Oak Brook and a 55-year-old male from Plainfield — fled into an open field.”

When police arrived at the scene, the Honda driver “pointed out the trio in the open field, and they were quickly taken into custody without incident,” Ferrelli said.

The St. Charles woman and Olvera’s girlfriend were slightly injured in the crash, and were treated on the scene by paramedics, Ferrelli said. Olvera and his male passenger refused medical treatment, he said.

Police charged Olvera with DUI, failure to provide information following a traffic accident, leaving the scene of a property damage crash, driving without insurance and improper lane use.

Olvera was driving the same Dodge Ram at 6:57 p.m. June 7, when he allegedly hit a silver, 2000 Honda Accord IL near 75th Street and Route 59 on Naperville’s far west side.

Naperville police Sgt. Bill Davis said officers found the two vehicles just north of that intersection, in a private driveway on the 2900 block of Audrey Avenue.

Witnesses told police they saw the Ram “make a quick, right turn from the middle lane of South Route 59, cut across the outside lane and (go) into the entrance access private drive,” Davis wrote in an email. Olvera “appeared to take the turn too sharply” and crashed into the Accord, damaging its left front side, Davis wrote. There were no injuries.

Police found a pipe inside the Ram “that had the strong odor of burnt cannabis,” Davis said. “Further investigation revealed that Olvera had smoked cannabis earlier, prior to driving, (and) also displayed signs of intoxication.”

Davis said Olvera in that case was charged with driving under the influence of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

An examination of documents on file in Will County Circuit Court in Joliet revealed Olvera was ticketed in 2008 and last year for shoplifting. He is scheduled to appear Wednesday in court in connection with the Aurora crash and on July 8 in the Naperville case.
