Crash that injures 3 kids leaves 1 accused of drunk driving

Being involved in a serious car accident can be a traumatic experience. Should others suffer injuries in the crash, the driver who caused the collision may carry the incident with him or her for years to come. Unfortunately, an accident that injured several children has left a 31-year-old woman facing felony drunk driving charges in Wisconsin.

Law enforcement agents asset the incident took place on a recent Sunday as they were on the scene of an unrelated accident. While waiting for a tow truck to move a vehicle, police state that a nearby driver suddenly lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the rear of a police cruiser. They claim the vehicle was traveling at excessive speeds and say the impact of the crash forced the cruiser to collide with the tow truck.

Authorities assert that a child was ejected from the vehicle and suffered a head injury, while two other kids in the vehicle suffered only minor injuries. They also claim to have found the driver unconscious and say that they found several empty alcohol containers in the vehicle. While speaking with authorities, the woman allegedly admitted to drinking alcohol prior to driving, and she was arrested shortly thereafter and is now facing felony charges.

An accident involving injuries and the presence of minors in the vehicle only add to the potential severity of a conviction for drunk driving. Those who face similar charges may find it beneficial to speak with an attorney as soon as possible for advice on their available options and guidance in making informed decisions regarding their case. An attorney in Wisconsin can examine the situation thoroughly and help a client better prepare to pursue the best outcome achievable during subsequent legal proceedings.
