WAUKEGAN, IL (WLIP)–A Kenosha woman has been arrested on a warrant that was issued for a Waukegan crash that took place over two years ago.

The now 35-year-old was picked up last week on a warrant that had been issued in May.

According to court records, charges include reckless homicide and aggravated DUI causing death.
