Alleged speeding driver may face DUI charge after 2-car crash

Speeding on California roads, especially while under the influence of alcohol, can have severe consequences. Defending DUI charges can be a stressful situation, and the consequences of a conviction can ruin a person's life. The Los Angeles Police Department said a driver who was taken to a hospital after a recent accident can expect to be arrested on a DUI charge.

Authorities reported that they responded to an accident in the early morning hours of a recent Saturday. Upon arrival at the scene, they found the remnants of a two-vehicle crash. A preliminary accident report indicates that the driver of a southbound vehicle lost control of his car on a road in Boyle Heights. His lack of control caused the vehicle to cross into the northbound traffic lanes, and he smashed head-on into a northbound car.

According to the LAPD, the driver who crossed over was suspected of driving under the influence. He suffered only minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. The other driver's injuries were reportedly more severe. He suffered facial and knee abrasions along with internal injuries. Police reported that speed was believed to have played a role in this crash.

When a suspected drunk driver in California is injured and hospitalized, an arrest typically follows release from the medical facility. At this stage, a suspected drunk driver may benefit from retaining the services of an experienced attorney who focuses on protecting the rights of each client who is facing a DUI charge. A lawyer can provide guidance and support to the accused throughout the criminal proceedings and pursue a result that is favorable and consistent with the client's best interests.
