Dean Suominen, 37, avoided jail time by pleading guilty Monday to drunken driving and reckless driving charges in the Jan. 10, 2012 accident in Napierville, Ill., the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday.
Suominen's car disintegrated around him after it struck a curb, rolled over and struck a billboard, although he received only minor injuries, authorities said.
Tests after the crash indicated his blood alcohol level was .20, more than twice the .08 legal limit, Napierville prosecutor Michael DeSanto said, and police said a data recorder in the car clocked his speed at 142 miles per hour immediately before the accident.
