Driver accused of causing crash while driving under the influence

A California man deemed responsible for a crash on a recent Wednesday was reportedly also arrested approximately one week before this incident. That arrest followed allegations of driving under the influence of drugs and also possession of controlled substances and paraphernalia. Officials suspect the 22-year-old driver from Rancho Penasquitos to have, once again, been impaired when he allegedly caused this accident.

According to accident investigators, the man was westbound in a pickup truck on a street in Poway on a recent Wednesday morning. He allegedly failed to maintain control of his vehicle and swerved across the median into the eastbound lanes. His truck then smashed head-on into a vehicle that was operated by a 48-year-old father from Poway who had his two children, ages 3 and 5, with him.

The driver who lost control of his truck and his 19-year-old passenger suffered serious injuries, and they were transported to a medical facility in Escondido. The children and their father reportedly suffered minor injuries that were treated at a local emergency room. Authorities reported that investigators failed to see an indication that the alleged DUI driver applied brakes to avoid the crash. Furthermore, drugs and paraphernalia were reportedly found in his vehicle.

California drivers who are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs typically benefit from having the support and guidance of an experienced criminal defense attorney. This will be the most appropriate step to take because a lawyer who is seasoned in DUI defense will scrutinize the charges and the evidence held by the prosecution. The defense strategy used will endeavor to achieve the best possible outcome.
