Motor vehicle accidents can happen at any time of the day or night and for a variety of different reasons. When people are involved in an accident, regardless of whether they suffer physical injury, they could react in a way that might make police suspicious even if no criminal action has occurred. Unfortunately, a woman in Missouri was recently charged with two counts of DWI following an accident that sent at least three people to the hospital.
Drivers, especially those driving at night, have many distractions and hazards while they are on Missouri roads. Unfortunately, something as simple as drifting onto the shoulder of the road can have drastic consequences. Despite the relative ease in which an accident can occur, a driver in Missouri now faces accusations of drunk driving following a collision with a state trooper's car.
When a person is accused of a crime, he or she often has no idea how to respond. Additionally, the individual may be unclear about applicable constitutional rights, making it difficult to recognize and respond to unlawful treatment at the hands of police officers or prosecutors. Unfortunately, a man in Missouri may be confused about his options after a crash resulted in accusations of DWI.
All people accused of a crime have certain rights. However, those without legal training may not be fully aware of their rights or the potential implications of certain decisions they make, such as talking with police without the advice of an attorney. Now, a man in Missouri is likely wondering what his legal options are after a warrant was issued for his arrest because police suspected he was drunk driving at the time he was allegedly involved in a wrong-way accident.
In the aftermath of a motor vehicle crash, a victim's perception of reality may be skewed. In fact, even those who are eyewitnesses may not be able to fully comprehend the events happening around them. However, a man in Missouri is now facing a DWI charge even though he informed police he was not the one driving the vehicle at the time of the accident.
In less time than it takes to change a radio station or reach for a dropped item on the floorboard, a vehicle can drift slightly off the roadway. Many drivers in Missouri, concerned about the potential consequences of even momentarily leaving the roadway, have a moment of panic, causing them to drift off the road. Unfortunately, a driver in Missouri who is believed to have crashed in such a scenario is now suspected of DWI.
A car accident can happen so quickly that a driver often has little opportunity to react. When a person is involved in an accident that causes serious harm, that event will likely live with them for the rest of his or her life. Unfortunately, a teenager in Missouri is now accused of drunk driving following a crash that reportedly killed two people.
For those who have been driving on Missouri roads for years, the experience of failing to notice a red light or not noticing one in time to stop is likely familiar. While these incidents likely happen relatively frequently, they do not always result in a crash. Unfortunately, one man in Missouri who police say failed to stop at a traffic light is now accused of drunk driving.
The average person in Missouri likely has little experience with the criminal justice system. As a result, when a person is charged with a crime, he or she may be unaware of the process, his or her rights and how to respond to allegations. One young man in Missouri is likely experiencing a great deal of uncertainty after he was accused of drunk driving.
Drug side effects can often have dramatic, but unpredictable consequences. They can make a normally calm, pleasant person paranoid and violent. Unfortunately, loved ones of drug abusers are often unsure how to respond to such unpredictable behavior. In fact, a man in Missouri was recently charged with murder after he claims he defended himself from his girlfriend who was on drugs.
