Man arrested for drunk driving after accident

In Rochester and the surrounding areas, drivers are advised to adhere to the speed limits and refrain from driving under the influence. When there is a crash, law enforcement will immediately seek to discern if there were issues with the driver that could have sparked the accident. This is true whether it is a single-car crash or there was more than one vehicle involved. If it is believed that alcohol or other intoxicating substances were a factor in the accident, there will likely be DWI charges. It is important to understand the potential consequences and formulate a strong legal defense.

A car accident led to a man being arrested on DWI charges. When first responders arrived at the scene, they concluded that the driver had lost control of his vehicle and crashed. It rolled over and hit a fence. Speed is believed to have factored into the accident, and investigators believe the driver failed to navigate a turn when he crashed. After investigating the accident, law enforcement determined that the driver was under the influence and arrested him.

The law treats DWI charges very seriously and a conviction can negatively impact a person’s life in multiple ways. Consequences could include a jail sentence, fines, the loss of driving privileges and more. Since there are many factors surrounding a DWI charge, there are also numerous ways in which a defense can be lodged. Perhaps the breath test was not done according to protocol or the driver only appeared to be under the influence, but was not. No matter what, having legal advice is vital to combat the charges.

Drunk driving charges are serious for anyone, but, for a younger person, it can severely hinder their entire life. For those facing drunk driving charges, it is important to know one’s options. A law firm with experience and skill at assisting clients arrested for DWI should be called immediately for advice and guidance.
