Drunk driving suspected following North Carolina crash

Accidents on interstates happen every day in North Carolina. While some occur because of drivers engaging in illegal activities, many occur due to an unexpected change in road conditions or lack of familiarity with an area. Despite this, it is easy for police officers to assume that an accident was caused by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol, for example. In fact, they believe that a recent crash on an interstate was the result of drunk driving.

The incident happened on a day in August. State troopers claim that the driver of a pickup truck lost control, causing the truck to crash. Another vehicle was ultimately involved in the accident as that driver reportedly attempted to avoid the accident.

The driver of the pickup truck was transported to the hospital for treatment but is expected to recover. It is unclear what led North Carolina state troopers to believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash or what evidence supports their suspicions. The accident resulted in the closure of the road during the ensuing investigation.

The identify of those involved in the accident has not been released, and it appears that charges were not filed immediately following the accident despite the belief that drunk driving was involved. Many people in North Carolina suspected of a crime choose to seek guidance from an experienced attorney during the early stages of a case -- often before charges are even filed. Because it may be difficult to discern how information given to law enforcement officers may be used, having someone guide a suspect through questioning can help ensure a full understanding of the implications of any information that may be provided.
