Woman could be charged with DUI after crashing into wall

At approximately 2 a.m. on Feb. 18, police were called to the scene of a single-car accident. When they arrived, officers discovered that the car had struck a retaining wall measuring about 2 feet in height. Police say the Utah woman behind the wheel could be charged with DUI as a result of the incident.

Preliminary reports indicate that, after the woman somehow lost control of her vehicle, it went through a convenience store parking lot, but did not stop there. The vehicle then entered the lanes of one direction of travel first, then went through the median into the lanes of the other direction of travel. Her car finally came to a rest when it hit the wall.

The driver struck her head during her ordeal and was taken to an area hospital to be examined. Police suspect the woman was driving under the influence of either drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, and they reportedly believe she will face charges. No information was given as to what evidence officers have to substantiate their claim.

If the woman is charged with DUI, she and her criminal defense team will be given the opportunity to review all of the evidence that Utah prosecutors intend to use against her in court. The circumstances surrounding the crash, her contact with law enforcement officers and the physical evidence will all need to be examined to determine whether proper procedures were followed and evidence was properly handled. The outcome of these efforts will most likely determine the course of her defense if charges are filed against her.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
