Man charged with drunk driving following fatal accident

One man was recently taken into custody in Florida on charges related to DUI. The drunk driving arrest took place on a Wednesday. It occurred in connection with a fatal accident that happened on a state road.

Police said a 22-year-old man was driving his sport utility vehicle east along State Road 407 close to Interstate 95. He suddenly veered into the lanes heading west for reasons that remain unknown. Police said the man then struck the compact sport utility vehicle that was being driven by a 20-year-old woman, head on.

The woman died in the collision. Meanwhile, the man suffered injuries deemed critical in the crash. His blood alcohol content was allegedly determined to be .132 percent when the wreck occurred. He now faces charges of DUI manslaughter.

A person who is convicted of DUI manslaughter in Florida can expect to spend at least a few years in prison. People facing charges related to drunk driving have the right to go to trial if they think this is in their best interests. The prosecution has to prove these charges by relevant evidence before a criminal conviction is possible. In some situations, a defendant is given the opportunity to strike a plea deal with prosecutors, which may lead to reduced charges and/or a lighter sentence from a Florida court. Defense counsel will push for the best possible outcome for the accused and will fight to ensure that all of his or her rights are protected at all stages of the criminal proceeding.
