North Carolina driver charged with DUI in accident with injuries

The decision to drive a vehicle carries with it a certain responsibility. In addition to one's own actions, the driver is also responsible for his or her passengers as well as others with whom he or she may come in contact. When one decides to operate a vehicle on a North Carolina roadway, one is taking on a great responsibility.

Recently, the driver of a Ford Explorer was involved in a single car crash that apparently caused injury to her three minor passengers. All in all, there were seven people in the vehicle, including the 24-year-old driver. Reports indicate that she veered off the side of the road and, as she corrected that error, she over-corrected and crossed over the center line. Her vehicle then went off the road on the left hand side, turned over and collided with several trees. The three children in the Explorer were injured and transported to the hospital.

North Carolina law enforcement officers have indicated that they believe alcohol was a contributing factor in this accident. The driver has been charged with a variety of traffic-related offenses, including driving while impaired. However, reports also indicate that the results of her blood alcohol test have not yet been released.

Whenever a North Carolina resident faces such charges, he or she will want an experienced attorney making sure that his or her rights are protected. If convicted, the accused stands to lose driving privileges as well as face fines and possible jail time. In addition, based upon the individual's occupation, a conviction could have a negative impact upon employment status.
