Driver faces DUI charge after crash leaves 1 dead, 1 paralyzed

Drivers who are arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs will likely realize the gravity of the situation. The action they take to have their rights protected may affect their freedom and their futures. They will probably have many questions and may need an attorney's assistance to provide clear direction on how to proceed in defending a DUI charge.

A 24-year-old man is now facing several charges after being arrested on a recent Sunday morning. The California Highway Patrol reported that the man was the driver of a car that was involved in a fatal accident. They said that his alleged failure to obey a stop sign at an intersection was the result of his intoxicated state. The driver crashed into the side of another vehicle that was going through the intersection at the time.

The injury report stated that the suspected drunk driver suffered only lacerations to his face while his passenger was ejected from the vehicle and died on impact. The other car had four occupants, of which only one did not suffer serious injuries. The driver and one passenger suffered internal injuries and severe lacerations, while the third passenger's neck was broken -- leaving him paralyzed. The driver who allegedly caused the accident was arrested, but no details of potential charges were mentioned in the report.

Drivers who are arrested on a DUI charge on California roads may benefit from seeking the services of a professional who is experienced in the defense of DUI related charges. All the charges against the defendant will be examined in a quest to build a strong defense. Only when the prosecutors can prove the defendant guilty beyond reasonable doubt may the court find the accused guilty. Proper presentation and effective defense strategies may lead to the best possible outcome.
