Alleged California hit-and-run driver faces suspected DUI charge

California drivers who are caught driving under the influence of alcohol will likely have to face the consequences. A Pinole man who is suspected of drunk driving was recently arrested, and he is now facing a DUI charge. It is also alleged that the driver was involved in a hit-and-run accident.

In the late afternoon of a recent Tuesday, the Hercules police received a call reporting a hit-and-run accident in a grocery store's parking lot. The person reporting the incident claimed the driver fled the scene and gave a description of the vehicle, the direction in which the driver fled, and the license plate of the pickup truck claimed to have been involved in the accident. The vehicle was later spotted by police on a road in the neighboring Pinole.

After the Pinole officers had conducted a traffic stop, the Hercules police were informed, and they arrived to conduct a field sobriety test on 30-year-old suspected hit-and-run driver. The tests reportedly indicated that his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit of .08 percent. The driver was booked into a detention facility.

The logical first step for a California driver who is facing a DUI charge will be to retain the services of an experienced DUI defense attorney. All of the prosecution's evidence can be examined, and the procedures that were used to determine the alleged intoxication level can be scrutinized. Any issues -- factual or legal -- that are identified can be addressed during the proceedings in the court. A lawyer will ensure that the constitutional rights of the accused driver are upheld. This includes the right to impartial and fair treatment throughout all proceedings.
