An Alabama man is facing what is possibly his worst nightmare; a Grand Jury review for the role that he inadvertently played in the fatal car wreck that killed one woman and injured the intoxicated driver, sending him to the hospital for treatment after the accident occurred, as reported by a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The Alabama man is now facing murder charges stemming from the accidental death of the woman who died that night last summer. The injuries that the victim sustained in the collision that occurred on evening of July 31, 2009 were so severe that she died immediately. The man being blamed for the accident was found by State Troopers to be operating his motor vehicle, a pickup truck, under the influence of alcohol and over the safe legal driving limit at the time of the accident, reports showed.
According to a New York Criminal Lawyer, the truck driven by the accused Alabama man crossed the center yellow line on Baldwin County Road 62 and smashed head on into the vehicle that was traveling opposite him in the other lane. That vehicle was being driven by the 68 year old woman, who was not intoxicated at the time, reports showed.
The victim died at the scene of the accident. More details will be made available pending further investigation, reports the New York Criminal Lawyer. Records show that the intoxicated Alabama man was arrested and booked on November 9, 2009. He was later released on $50,000 bail and is now awaiting his Grand Jury review and trial.
