Serious charges result from suspected DUI crash that proved fatal

Though many drunk driving cases occur every year, each case is different. When a driver is facing charges for DUI, it is important that the individual focuses on the details of his or her case and how they could impact a defense. In some incidents, a driver may simply be stopped by police and charged, and in other cases, allegations could result from a serious accident.

If a motor vehicle accident occurs on a Utah highway, the drivers and passengers of the vehicles involved must remain at the scene unless, of course, they are being urgently transported to a medical facility because of serious injuries. Attempting to leave the scene of an accident without permission can lead to legal problems. Police say a man who now stands accused of driving under the influence of alcohol tried to flee police moments after he crashed his car.
