Man charged with drunk driving after Florida crash

One man in Florida currently faces DUI charges. His arrest took place following a vehicle crash in which police said he was involved. The DUI accident, which may have involved either drunk driving or driving while under the influence of drugs, happened on a recent Friday afternoon.

According to police, the 26-year-old man was driving north along U.S. Highway 41 shortly after 5:40 p.m. He reportedly did not see another car slowing down to make a turn into a nearby parking lot. Police said he ended up rear-ending a car driven by another man, age 24. This second car then rear-ended a third vehicle driven by a 41-year-old woman.

The man driving the second car suffered injuries and was transported to a medical center, where his condition was deemed critical. The female driver suffered minor injuries and was also transported to the hospital. The man who allegedly caused the accident suffered no injuries, and neither did a passenger in his vehicle. He has been charged with DUI with injury, as well as reckless driving, and his bail was set for $13,000.

When person is accused of drunk driving, he or she has the right to proceed directly to trial in a Florida courtroom. There, prosecutors must prove the individual's charges beyond a reasonable doubt before any conviction can be secured. The individual may also be given the chance to strike a plea deal with the prosecution, which may be more appealing if it might lead to a reduced sentence. The criminal defense will focus on helping the client to select the most personally favorable outcome in light of the circumstances.
