DWI charges follow fatal Missouri car accident

In the aftermath of a fatal car accident, there is an understandable need to investigate the events leading up to it and, perhaps, identify someone on which to place blame. Despite this desire, there must be evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt in order for someone to be convicted of charges related to an accident, especially because many accidents are the result of a simple oversight of a driver. In fact, it is unclear what supports the DWI charges a man in Missouri is now facing.

The incident that led to the 33-year-old man's arrest reportedly happened during the afternoon hours of a day in late November. Reports indicate that he was headed north in a van when the vehicle crossed over into oncoming traffic. Unfortunately, the van is said to have collided with an oncoming vehicle.

The driver of that vehicle, an 88-year-old man, died at the scene. Reports indicate that a passenger in his vehicle, an 87-year-old woman, suffered serious injuries. The driver of the northbound vehicle was also transported to the hospital.

The man is now facing criminal charges in Missouri, including DWI resulting in serious injuries and DWI resulting in death of another. Despite the accusations against the man, it is unclear what his blood alcohol content was or how it was determined. An experienced attorney can help the man carefully examine the evidence against him and create a response plan that is tailored to his individual circumstances. Potential responses include accepting a plea deal, if offered, or fighting the charges in court.
