Fatal Missouri skid steer accident results in drunk driving claim

The criminal justice system, for many in Missouri, can often feel overwhelming. This may be especially true for those who are facing police scrutiny and also coping with an unexpected death. Unfortunately, one man is now facing accusations of drunk driving following a recent fatal accident.

The incident that led to the man's arrest happened on a day in August. According to police, a 24-year-old male was driving a Bobcat skid-steer. A 20-year-old male was reportedly riding in the bucket of it.

Unfortunately, the Bobcat is believed to have struck a pothole, causing the younger man to fall out of the bucket. He, according to reports, was then struck by the Bobcat and passed away as a result of his injuries. The man police say was driving the equipment at the time was taken into custody the next day, suspected of driving while intoxicated causing death of another. Reports indicate that both men worked for construction companies, but the equipment used in the accident was not owned by their employers.

There is often a great deal of fear and uncertainty that comes with accusations of drunk driving and a subsequent arrest. Often, those in such a situation are unsure of their rights and options as they face questions and other aspects of the criminal justice system. As such, many people in Missouri suspected of or charged with a crime want an experienced attorney guiding them throughout the process, including advising them during initial questioning and ensuring that they are treated lawfully throughout.
