1 accused of drunk driving after vehicle crashes into house

There are a variety of scenarios in which a person could lose control of a vehicle and veer off the road. Once a car travels off path, making the necessary maneuvers to limit the severity of a subsequent collision could prove challenging at best. Unfortunately, a recent incident in which a vehicle crashed into the side of a home in California has left a 33-year-old woman in custody on suspicion of drunk driving.

Law enforcement agents say they responded to reports of the crash at around 4:30 a.m. on a recent Saturday. Upon arriving at the scene, they claim to have found a vehicle lodged in the side of a local home. While the details pertaining to how the accident occurred remain unclear, they have advised that the person living in the home had already made it outside and was not injured in the process.

The incident is said to have caused substantial damage to the structure, subsequently forcing officials to shut off power and gas to the home. Police also assert that the driver who caused the incident was still sitting inside the vehicle. Although no information was given as to how they came to inspect the presence of impairment, she was reportedly taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving shortly thereafter.

Facing drunk driving charges in connection with a major collision can be an intimidating process. Since the average person typically lacks the necessary legal experience to know how best to approach a similar situation, those who stand accused of such an offense could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney early on. An attorney can evaluate the evidence and charges against a client in California and assist in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
