The aftermath of a serious motor vehicle accident has the potential to leave a person somewhat shaken up and disoriented. While this might be a normal reaction to such an incident, in some cases, one's behavior could lead authorities to suspect the presence of impairment. A 70-year-old man has been arrested and accused of DUI after authorities claim he began to show signs of intoxication following a recent collision in California.
A car accident can take place in the blink of an eye, and leave those involved shaken up and uncertain of what just occurred. While a similar situation can be challenging enough in its own right, if additional charges are included, a person may feel somewhat overwhelmed by the criminal defense process. A woman from another state has recently been arrested and accused of drunk driving in California after allegedly striking a police motorcycle from behind and injuring an officer.
