Single-vehicle accident leaves 1 facing felony DUI charges

Motor vehicle accidents may take place under a variety of circumstances. For instance, with the inherent reduction in visibility, accidents that take place at night may simply be the result of poor lighting and driver disorientation. Unfortunately, a recent single-vehicle accident in which a passenger suffered injuries has left a 25-year-old man facing felony DUI charges in California.

Law enforcement agents advised they received reports of the incident at around 11:30 p.m. on a recent Thursday. According to reports, the accident took place when a driver lost control of his vehicle and veered into a nearby ditch. Police say the vehicle overturned into the ditch and state that a passenger was ejected from the vehicle in the process.

The passenger reportedly suffered major injuries and was transported to a nearby medical facility before being airlifted to another facility for further treatment. The driver suffered minor injuries in the accident and was taken into custody soon thereafter on suspicion of driving while under the influence. Although many of the details concerning how authorities came to suspect the presence of impairment remain unclear, he is reportedly facing felony drunk driving charges.

Felony DUI charges carry severe penalties should a conviction be obtained, and those who face similar charges may benefit from seeking guidance as soon as possible. By retaining the services of an experienced attorney, a person in California might obtain much-needed advice in making informed decisions regarding his or her case. An attorney can help a client gain a better understanding of the process and assist in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
