1 accused of drunk driving in accident that injured pedestrian

Pedestrian-related collisions can have devastating consequences, and being involved in such an accident can be a daunting experience. Those who hit and cause injuries to a pedestrian may carry the experience with them for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, a recent collision involving similar circumstances has left a 48-year-old man facing drunk driving charges in California.

Law enforcement agents claim the accident took place as the man lost control of his vehicle upon approaching a curve in the road at a high rate of speed. They say that as he attempted to navigate the curve, his car began to slide and proceeded to strike a nearby pedestrian soon thereafter. The pedestrian reportedly suffered injuries in the process and was admitted to a nearby medical facility for treatment.

After his vehicle finally came to a halt after slamming into a nearby fence, police claim the man attempted to flee the scene on foot. He was arrested shortly thereafter and taken into custody on suspicion of driving while impaired. Many of the details concerning how authorities came to believe the man was intoxicated at the time remain unclear.

When facing drunk driving charges, the average person might be unaware of his or her rights or uncertain how best to handle the situation. Those who stand accused of similar crimes could benefit from consulting with an experienced attorney early on for guidance in understanding all their available options. An attorney can review the charges and evidence against a client in California and assist him or her in forming a strong defense for use during court proceedings.
