Head-on crash leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges in California

There are a variety of scenarios in which a person may lose control of a vehicle and cross into the wrong lane of traffic. Whether it stems from the onset of a medical condition, or from a moment of distraction, should this action lead to a collision, the results can be disastrous. Unfortunately, one person has been accused of drunk driving following a recent head-on collision in California.

Authorities say the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. on a recent Tuesday as they were responding to reports of a wrong-way driver. Upon encountering the vehicle, they say the driver nearly struck two emergency vehicles before colliding head-on with a nearby car. The drivers of both vehicles were taken to a hospital for treatment soon thereafter, and the driver of the second car reportedly suffered major injuries in the crash.

After being released from the hospital, the driver who caused the collision was reportedly taken into custody on suspicion of driving while impaired. However, no further details were provided as to how authorities came to believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash. She is now facing drunk driving charges and she reportedly remains in custody while awaiting future legal proceedings.

Being in a major collision can be stressful enough as is, and facing drunk driving charges in relation to the crash can be even more challenging. Upon being accused of a similar offense, a person in California could find it advisable to consult with an attorney for guidance on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence a client is facing and assist in forming a strong defense for use during court proceedings.
