DUI charge filed against Davis man after fatal crash

A California man was arrested after a recent incident in which his vehicle crashed into another car. The driver of the other vehicle was killed, and others suffered injuries. Police say he is facing a DUI charge along with a count of vehicular manslaughter and child endangerment.

According to the Davis Police Department, the man's level of intoxication was only determined some time after the collision. They reported that witnesses said he was speeding and driving erratically prior to the crash. It has also not been determined whether the accused driver was actually responsible for the accident.

An accident report indicates that the 32-year-old driver was westbound on a Davis road in an SUV with four juveniles and another adult in the vehicle. The crash reportedly occurred when another driver turned left at a stop sign, directly into the path of the accused drunk driver. Accident investigators are trying to determine whether the other driver yielded to the SUV before turning.

While this driver is being held in a county jail on a DUI charge, his attorney can examine the validity of each of the charges. The time and method used to determine his blood alcohol level will also be scrutinized. An experienced DUI defense attorney may even launch an independent investigation to evaluate the evidence against the accused driver in order to prepare an effective defense. The burden of proof remains on the prosecution, and any accused person in California will is innocent until -- and only if -- his or her guilt can be proved beyond a reasonable doubt.
