Hit-and-run crash leaves 1 facing drunk driving charges

Although the idea of dealing with the fallout of a motor vehicle collision can be intimidating, attempting to leave the scene of a crash is never advisable. Such a decision may not only leave others involved in search of answers, it could also leave a person facing severe penalties. A recent hit-and-run crash in California has reportedly left a 29-year-old man in custody facing drunk driving charges.

Law enforcement agents say they responded to the scene of the crash at around 4 p.m. on a recent Saturday. While the details of the investigation into the accident remain unclear, authorities claim that the person who caused it to occur left the scene shortly thereafter. They were allegedly able to identify and locate the driver shortly thereafter and say he appeared to be exhibiting signs of impairment.

According to reports, the driver of the other vehicle suffered only minor injuries and was released after being treated at the scene. Although it remains unclear how authorities came to believe impairment was a contributing factor, the man was taken into custody on suspicion of drunk driving. He is now facing charges for driving under the influence and leaving the scene of a crash.

Being accused of drunk driving can be a stressful and harrowing experience. Those who face similar allegations may wish to prepare for what comes next by focusing on forming a strong defense, and they could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney for guidance in making informed decisions about their case. This type of advice could help a person in California become better prepared to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable during subsequent court proceedings.
