A 12-year-old Downers Grove boy is dead, and his father and another man are recovering from injuries after a two-vehicle crash in DeKalb County.

DeKalb County sheriff's police say Blaine Molaro was dead at the scene, just east of Sycamore last night. His father, 42-year-old Mark Molaro, is in stable condition at Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

Authorities say the Molaros were in a Jeep that collided nearly head-on with a minivan driving by 56-year-old Felix Hernandez of West Chicago. The accident happened on Illinois Route 64.

Hernandez is in a Rockford hospital. Police say he faces drunken driving charges.
