DUI charges leveled against man after Utah crash

After certain events, some individuals may wonder whether they truly could have been involved in them. Unfortunately, no matter if they can believe it or not, some parties may find themselves having to deal with serious repercussions of their actions. For instance, a person could end up having to create a defense for DUI charges.

One man in Utah is currently facing such issues after a recent event. According to reports, the man had been in his pickup truck in the drive-thru of a fast food restaurant. For some reason, the man purportedly accelerated and hit the vehicle in front of him. The man then struck another vehicle before traveling onto the road in reverse. He allegedly crossed seven lanes of traffic before hitting a concrete barrier.

Authorities arrived at the scene and conducted field sobriety tests, which the man reportedly failed. It was also reported that the man's blood alcohol content level was .318 according to a breath test. As a result, he was taken into custody on charges of DUI with serious bodily injury.

Though the man may feel as if the cards are stacked against him, he still has the chance to defend himself against the DUI charge. If he does not know where to start, he may find it helpful to obtain reliable information regarding his legal options. This information could be obtained from a local Utah criminal defense attorney, and the man may also find it helpful to ensure that he understands the allegations brought against him and the legal proceedings ahead.

  • 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...
