1 accused of drunk driving after crashing vehicle into ditch

Attempting to read or write a text message while operating a vehicle can be hazardous under any circumstance. Such an action inherently causes drivers to take their eyes off the road if only for a moment, and in this moment, disaster might not be far away. A recent single-vehicle accident in which a man claims he was attempting to send a text message has left him facing drunk driving charges in Wisconsin.

Authorities say they received reports of the incident just before 5 p.m. on a recent Saturday. After arriving at the location, they found a vehicle that had crashed into a ditch and say the driver was standing outside of it and appeared to be unharmed. They say he informed them that he lost control of the vehicle while texting, but they claim to have caught a scent of alcohol while speaking to him.

Police also assert that he appeared to be exhibiting other signs of impairment and state that field sobriety tests were administered soon thereafter. The man was subsequently placed under arrest on suspicion of driving while impaired. With reports indicating he has five previous drunk driving convictions on record, he is now facing felony charges.

A conviction for felony drunk driving carries severe consequences that could have a significant impact on a person's future. When facing similar charges, a person in Wisconsin who wishes to better understand his or her available options and how best to prepare for what comes next could find it helpful to retain the services of an attorney as soon as possible. Such guidance could help place a person in Wisconsin in a better position to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable concerning the future during subsequent court proceedings.
