1 accused of drunk driving following fatal collision

Being involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who survive such an incident might experience severe emotional trauma in the process and they may carry the experience with them throughout life. Unfortunately, a recent fatal accident that is said to have occurred in California has left a 35-year-old man accused of drunk driving.

Law enforcement agents reportedly responded to the scene of the accident on a recent Friday evening. According to initial investigations, the incident took place when the driver of a northbound car suddenly crossed the median and struck a nearby truck head-on. The driver of the truck reportedly died at the scene of the accident, and the driver of the car was airlifted to a medical facility for treatment of severe injuries.

During an investigation of the incident, law enforcement agents claim to have discovered the driver of the car was under the influence of alcohol. However, no further details were provided as to how they came to believe impairment was a contributing factor. While being involved in such an incident can be harrowing enough as is, a subsequent conviction for drunk driving carries severe consequences that could impact a person's life substantially.

Those who stand accused of drunk driving following a fatal collision may find it beneficial to seek guidance as soon as possible. By speaking with an attorney, a person in California could gain a better understanding of the consequences he or she may face, as well as guidance on the best course of action with which to proceed. If a conviction cannot be avoided, an attorney can assist a client in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
