Malta man picks up crash driver, arrested

DeKALB – A Malta man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol Sunday morning after transporting the driver of a single-vehicle rollover crash from the scene.

Norman J. Bodda, 21, of the 300 block of North Second Street in Malta, was arrested after his Buick sedan was located at the Phillips 66 gas station at Sycamore and Bethany roads in DeKalb around 6 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office.

Cassandra McGuire, 18, of the 500 block of East Jefferson Street in Malta, was driving a 2001 Mitsubishi two-door when it rolled over at Twombly Road west of Lucas Road in DeKalb.

A witness told deputies that McGuire had left the scene in the Buick.

Bodda was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia and obstructing justice.

The crash involving McGuire still is under investigation. She was transported to Kishwaukee Hospital but was not a patient there Sunday night.
