Pedestrian accident leaves 1 accused of drunk driving

While dealing with the aftermath of an accident can seem stressful and daunting, attempting to flee the scene of a crash is never advisable. Such a decision may only increase suspicion of wrongful behavior and could also leave a person facing additional charges in relation to the incident. A 25-year-old man in Wisconsin is facing multiple charges after he was accused of drunk driving and fleeing the scene of a pedestrian accident.

The incident reportedly began after a police officer allegedly witnessed a vehicle strike a pedestrian in a parking lot on a recent Sunday. According to reports, police claim the driver proceeded to flee the scene of the incident. They say they were able to locate the vehicle soon thereafter and initiate a traffic stop and say that as they were speaking with the driver, they noticed he appeared to be exhibiting signs of impairment.

After the driver allegedly admitted to consuming alcohol prior to driving, field sobriety tests were initiated. Authorities assert that results from a subsequent breath test indicated the man's blood alcohol content to be more than twice the legal limit. He was taken into custody on suspicion of driving while impaired and is facing multiple charges in connection with the incident, including felony charges for hit and run and resisting an officer.

Those who stand accused of drunk driving in connection with an accident causing injury might not always be fully prepared to handle the situation, especially alone. When facing a similar scenario, a person in Wisconsin could find it helpful to speak with an attorney as soon as possible for guidance on all his or her available options. An attorney can evaluate the circumstances a client is facing and assist in forming a strategy to seek the best outcome possible concerning his or her future during legal proceedings.
