1 faces drunk driving charges after multiple-vehicle crash

When a major collision occurs, law enforcement agents may be tasked with investigating the incident and determining its cause. In some cases, such an investigation could leave one or more parties involved facing allegations of wrongdoing and the outcome of the situation could have a significant impact on each person's future. A recent multiple-vehicle crash in California that left as many as 10 people with injuries has also left a 30-year-old man facing drunk driving charges.

The crash is said to have taken place just after 9 p.m. on a recent Monday. Law enforcement agents claim that it occurred when the driver of a car suddenly rear-ended another vehicle while traveling at a high rate of speed. The initial impact prompted a chain reaction crash involving four vehicles in total, leaving 10 of those involved with injuries.

The man who allegedly caused the crash also suffered injuries and was taken to a hospital for medical care. While no further details were provided as to what led authorities to believe impairment was a contributing factor, the man was arrested in suspicion of impairment soon thereafter. According to reports, he is facing charges for operating a vehicle without a license and felony drunk driving charges.

Felony drunk driving charges carry severe penalties that could have a significant impact on a person's life should a conviction be obtained. Those who face similar charges and wish to better understand all their available options could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney can examine the circumstances a client in California is facing and assist him or her in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent legal proceedings.
