1 facing DUI charges after losing leg in motorcycle crash

Being involved in a motorcycle accident can be a devastating experience that could leave a person with life-altering injuries. While dealing with serious injuries can be challenging enough as is, should authorities believe the accident occurred under suspicious circumstances, a person could also face criminal charges. A 60-year-old man is facing DUI charges after losing his leg during a recent motorcycle accident in California.

The incident is said to have taken place at around 8 p.m. on a recent Wednesday. Law enforcement agents advised that a motorcycle rider had veered off the side of a road and struck a nearby guardrail. According to reports, the impact of the collision severed the man's right leg, and he was rushed to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries soon thereafter.

Authorities have advised that the investigation into the accident is currently ongoing. Although many of the details concerning the investigation remain unclear, they have also advised that the man will be facing charges for driving under the influence of alcohol. While major injuries can alter a person's life, a conviction for similar charges can also impact one's future in various ways.

Before a conviction for DUI charges can be obtained, there must be sufficient evidence to prove intoxication beyond a reasonable doubt. Those who stand accused of similar charges may find it advisable to speak with an attorney early on for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney in California can evaluate the charges and evidence against a client and assist him or her in preparing a strong defense for use during subsequent legal proceedings.
