A 27-year-old man rammed his vehicle into the back of another on an interstate in Riverside, California, then went on to drive the wrong way down the freeway, eventually getting into a head-on collision with another vehicle, California Highway Patrol officials said. The driver is suspected of a possible DWI.
The driver suffered a number of major injuries. He was trapped in the wreckage of his vehicle until emergency crews could finally extract him and take him to a hospital. An officer told a New York Criminal Lawyer that investigators would seek drunken driving charges from the driver.
It all began at 1:59 a.m. on the morning of April 2011, when the suspect was driving his vehicle at around 100 mph going south, authorities revealed. His first crash was into the back of a vehicle being driven by a 63-year-old man.
“Following this collision, [the driver] drove … (the) wrong-way northbound on southbound I-215 where he collided head-on with a another vehicle, driven by a 23 year old female.
Both the 63-year-old man and the 23-year-old woman suffered only minor injuries after the accident and were treated at a local hospital, investigators found.
The case may seem to be open and shut, but there are always two sides to any story. Even if everything is just as it seems, however, it is the right of everyone involved to have legal representation. When that time comes, it is important to have the best possible advocate. A criminal conviction, no matter how minor, could be a life changing event. Even the trial itself can turn life upside-down, whatever the outcome, according to a Queens Criminal Lawyer.
Major or minor, every allegation deserves a response. This should always be the best response possible, even if that response boils down to “guilty”. There are always other factors to consider due to the complexity of the law, extenuating circumstances, or the simple fact that the punishment should fit the crime. Every single person in the country has rights, and these rights deserve protection.
Skilled legal counsel is ready and able to protect the rights of the accused and give them a fair hearing in court. No one should ever have to settle for a lesser advocate, jeopardizing their futures and the futures of their families.
