Fatal accident leads to drunk driving charges for 1 in Wisconsin

A 53-year-old woman has recently been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol following a fatal collision that reportedly took place in Wisconsin. Drunk driving is a serious offense, and a conviction carries severe consequences that could have a substantial impact on the life of the accused. Those who face similar charges may choose to prepare for subsequent legal proceedings by forming a strong defense with the guidance of an attorney.

According to reports, the accident took place at around 7 p.m. on a recent Friday. Police assert the woman's vehicle crossed into the wrong lane of traffic and struck another vehicle head on. The woman was rushed to the hospital for treatment shortly after the accident, while the driver of the other vehicle was reportedly pronounced dead at the scene.

After being treated by medical professionals, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. It is unclear how authorities came to suspect intoxication was a contributing factor. In addition, no information was provided as to whether field sobriety or breath tests were carried out, or if a toxicology sample was taken while she was receiving treatment for her injuries.

With the potential gravity of a conviction for drunk driving charges, especially when a death occurs, an individual may find it advisable to seek counsel as soon as the charges are filed. Those who face similar accusations could speak with an experienced defense attorney for assistance in navigating the process. An attorney in Wisconsin can thoroughly examine the circumstances a client is facing and provide advice on the best course of action to take during court proceedings.
