CHICAGO — An off-duty Chicago Police detective was intoxicated when the SUV he was driving plowed into the back of a disabled car on the Dan Ryan Expy., killing two people in a fiery crash, authorities said.

Joseph Frugoli, 41, of the Bridgeport area, was charged Friday evening with two courts of aggravated driving under the influence, two counts of reckless homicide and one count of leaving the scene of an accident, said Sally Daly, spokeswoman for Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez. He will appear in bond court today.
