Woman accused of driving under the influence near casino

According to the California Highway Patrol, the roads around the Table Mountain Casino in Friant can be dangerous. People traveling to and from the casino 24 hours a day cause heavy traffic, and drivers are cautioned to be aware of the actions of other vehicle operators when driving in that area. A driver who allegedly caused a recent car accident near the casino is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

The CHP report about the crash indicates that it occurred shortly before midnight. A woman driver of a car that was heading toward the casino allegedly lost control of her car as she approached a curve in the road. She crashed head-on into a minivan that was occupied by a driver and one passenger.

The impact caused the van driver also to lose control, causing another crash that resulted in injuries to both occupants. The male driver was transported to a hospital by helicopter with a suspected fractured leg, and the passenger was transported to another hospital by road for the treatment of possible injuries. Authorities said the driver of the car was also complaining of pain, and she was taken to a hospital. Investigators reported that they suspected the driver of the car of being impaired.

This driver is now facing charges of driving under the influence, and she will likely be focusing on obtaining legal counsel to handle her defense. An experienced DUI defense attorney in California can scrutinize the charges and the methods used by deputies to determine the driver's level of intoxication. No conviction can take place prior to the prosecution proving the accused person's guilt beyond any reasonable doubt, and the defendant will have the opportunity to challenge any of the charges brought by the prosecution.
