Crash leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges in California

A recent incident in which a vehicle crashed into the side of a home in California has reportedly left a 23-year-old woman accused of driving under the influence. A conviction for drunk driving carries severe consequences and those who face similar charges may wish to prepare for what comes next by focusing on their defense. However, without the necessary legal knowledge, the process can be stressful and complex.

According to reports, the incident took place at around 8 p.m. on a recent Wednesday when law enforcement agents say they spotted a driver operating a vehicle without the use of headlights. After attempting to initiate a traffic stop, they claim the driver slowed down momentarily before fleeing the scene at a high rate of speed. Police say they were able to locate the vehicle shortly thereafter and assert that it had crashed into the side of a nearby home.

While law enforcement agents advised that the occupants of the home did not suffer injury in the accident, the driver was taken to the hospital for medical care. While no information was provided as to how authorities claim to believe impairment was a contributing factor, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence. In addition to drunk driving charges, she is also facing charges for evading authorities.

Being accused of drunk driving can be an intimidating process and those who face similar charges may find it beneficial to seek advice as soon as possible. By consulting with an attorney, a person in California could obtain advice in making informed choices about his or her situation. An attorney can help a client better understand all his or her available options and assist in pursuing the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
