1 accused of drunk driving following single-vehicle accident

There are a multitude of scenarios in which a driver may veer in and out of a lane of traffic. In some cases, something as simple as looking down briefly to change a radio station can create a similar result, and this momentary lapse in concentration may also be all it takes for disaster to strike. Unfortunately, a recent single-vehicle accident that took place in North Carolina has left a 29-year-old man facing drunk driving charges.

The incident reportedly took place at around 9:30 p.m. on a recent Saturday when a man was traveling with his two children in the vehicle. According to law enforcement agents, his vehicle suddenly drifted off the side of the road and overturned multiple times. One of his kids was reportedly ejected from the vehicle in the process and is reportedly in stable condition at a medical facility. The other child was also taken to the hospital but was released soon thereafter.

It is unclear if field sobriety or breath tests were conducted following the accident, or how authorities came to believe intoxication was a contributing factor. However, the driver of the vehicle was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. Along with being accused of DWI, he is also facing charges for child abuse and felony injury with a vehicle.

Individuals who are accused of drunk driving may face a variety of difficult decisions throughout the coming process. When facing similar charges, a person in North Carolina could consider speaking with a defense attorney for guidance in ensuring that the decisions he or she makes are informed. This type of advice could prove invaluable in preparing an individual to pursue the best outcome possible during subsequent legal proceedings.
