Accident at intersection leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges

A car accident can occur at any given moment and being involved in a collision can be a daunting experience. Those who suffer serious injuries in an accident may also face extensive medical bills and a lengthy period of recovery, which is a combination that can have a substantial impact on a person's future. Unfortunately, a recent accident in California has also left a 23-year-old woman accused of drunk driving.

Reports indicate the incident took place just after 4 p.m. as the woman was approaching an intersection. Another driver was attempting to make a left-hand turn at the intersection, and the two vehicles collided soon thereafter. Police advised that the accident caused significant damage to each vehicle and left both drivers with injuries.

The woman was transported to a medical facility for treatment following the crash, and she was subsequently taken into custody on suspicion of impairment. No further details were provided concerning how authorities came to believe intoxication was a contributing factor in the crash. Charges for driving under the influence carry serious penalties if a conviction is obtained, and the possible penalties only increase in severity should an accident take place, especially when injuries are present.

Being accused of drunk driving can be a stressful process and allegations alone can impact one's life in devastating ways. When facing similar charges, a person could choose to speak with an attorney for guidance on the best course of action with which to proceed. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client in California and assist him or her in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
