When people hear that someone was accused of driving under the influence, many assume that the driver was impaired by alcohol. However, a Utah resident can be charged with metabolite DUI. This means that police suspect the individual of being impaired by a substance other than alcohol, such as illegal or prescription drugs.
On a recent Friday, at approximately 10:45 a.m., a pickup truck had come to a stop at an intersection. While waiting for the traffic light, the truck was hit from behind by a car. The driver of the pickup says that the impact was hard enough that it almost pushed the truck into the intersection. Fortunately, the truck stopped in the crosswalk, and no pedestrians were in it at the time.
