High-speed crash leads to DUI charges for 1 in California

Operating a motor vehicle at a high rate of speed may come with a variety of risks. The monetary ramifications of a citation for speeding can be substantial and should an accident take place, the potential consequences of suffering or causing serious injuries could prove difficult to manage. Unfortunately, a recent high-speed collision that left several individuals with injuries has also left a 39-year-old man in California facing DUI charges.

Authorities responded to reports of a collision on a recent Saturday evening. They advised that the accident occurred when the driver of a westbound vehicle struck a van while traveling at a high rate of speed. The impact of the crash caused the van to overturn and after rolling nearly a block away, police advised that the first car suddenly erupted in flames.

Police have advised that several individuals within the van were rushed to the hospital for treatment of injures shortly thereafter. The driver of the first vehicle also suffered injuries in the crash and reportedly remains hospitalized. Although many of the details surrounding the investigation into the incident remain unclear, they have also advised that he now stands accused of driving under the influence.

Facing DUI charges can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who stand accused of a similar offense may wish to seek guidance in better understanding all their legal rights and available options by consulting with an attorney as soon as possible. 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.
