1 accused of drunk driving in accident that injures 2

Being involved in a serious motor vehicle accident can be a devastating experience. Once a dangerous collision occurs, law enforcement agents may be tasked with investigating the incident to determine what might have caused it to take place. Unfortunately, a recent collision that injured two individuals, one of whom was an on-duty police officer, has left a 49-year-old man accused of drunk driving in California.

The incident is said to have taken place on a recent Monday night as an on-duty police officer was approaching an intersection while out on patrol. According to authorities, the driver of a nearby car suddenly turned into the path of the police cruiser. Police assert that the officer was unable to react in time to avoid collision and state that the incident caused significant damage to both vehicles.

Both drivers reportedly suffered injuries in the collision and were transported to a hospital for treatment, and an investigation into the accident was initiated. During this investigation, authorities claim to have discovered that the man who caused the collision was exhibiting signs of impairment. According to reports, he remains in the hospital in critical condition, and he could be facing multiple charges upon being released.

The penalties for a conviction for drunk driving charges are severe, especially when an accident causing injuries is involved. Those who face similar charges could benefit from speaking with an attorney as soon as possible for advice on the potential consequences they may face. An attorney can help a client in California gain a better understanding of what to expect from the process and assist him or her in forming a strong defense for use during legal proceedings.
