Head-on crash leaves 1 facing DUI charges in California

When it comes to operating a motor vehicle, even a slight error in judgment could prove devastating. Should a person misjudge an oncoming vehicle's speed prior to attempting to maneuver a left turn, it could be nearly impossible for the other driver to react in time to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, a recent accident that left two individuals with injuries in California has also left one of the drivers facing DUI charges.

The accident is said to have taken place at around 4:45 p.m. on a recent Monday. Initial investigations indicate that the driver of a southbound vehicle was attempting to maneuver a left turn when he crossed into the path of another car. His vehicle struck the second car head-on shortly thereafter, leaving the driver trapped within his car until emergency responders arrived.

According to reports, both drivers suffered injuries in the crash and were airlifted to a hospital for medical care. During an investigation into the incident, law enforcement agents claim that the man who caused the crash appeared to be exhibiting signs of impairment. While it remains unclear how they came to believe impairment to be a contributing factor, the man has reportedly been arrested and on suspicion of driving under the influence.

While being involved in a major collision can be stressful enough as is, facing DUI charges in relation to the crash could prove even more daunting. Those who stand accused of similar offenses could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible for advice on how best to prepare for the subsequent process. An attorney can help a client in California better understand all his or her available options and assist in forming a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome possible during court proceedings.
