Wrong way driver accused of driving under the influence

A 32-year-old California man was locked up in the Marin County Jail after crashing his car into another vehicle. He may be facing several charges related to driving under the influence along with wrong-way driving on a freeway and more. The arrest followed an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of a recent Sunday.

California Highway Patrol reported that it was informed about a vehicle traveling north in one of the southbound lanes of U.S. 101. Within minutes, another call alerted the CHP of a wrong-way crash in the same area. Emergency workers arrived to find the wrong way driver being attended to by passersby and the other vehicle in flames on the shoulder of the road.

The occupants of that car managed to get out with minor injuries, and the fire department extinguished the fire. CHP officers interviewed the wrong way driver and suspected impairment. He was transported to a medical center for clearance before he was taken into custody. The CHP said, along with various felony DUI charges, the man may be charged with wrong-way driving, driving without a license and driving with no vehicle insurance.

This California driver who is accused of driving under the influence will likely be focusing on defending the charges that may be filed against him. Conviction of such charges can have severe consequences, and he might benefit from the services of an experienced DUI defense attorney. Once formal charges are filed, a lawyer can scrutinize the individual charges and the evidence held by the prosecution. Whatever defense strategy is chosen, an attorney will endeavor to achieve the best possible outcome.
