Fatal accident involving road workers leads to DUI charges

The consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol vary from case to case. Of course, individuals may want to remember that if criminal charges for DUI are brought against them, they must be convicted of the allegations before punishments can be enacted. Because avoiding serious sentencing is often the goal of many parties in this type of predicament, it may be wise to consider legal defense options.

It was recently reported that one man in Florida was charged in a recent accident. Apparently, the man was driving a pickup truck around 4 p.m. and reportedly lost control. His truck then went onto the shoulder of the road and struck two workers who were installing traffic signs. The truck continued traveling until it hit a parked vehicle and a light pole.

The incident resulted in one of the workers suffering fatal injuries, and the other suffering minor injuries. As a result, the driver of the truck, who was reported as being 58 years old, is currently facing charges for vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and careless driving. It was unclear what the driver's blood alcohol concentration level may have been at the time of the accident.

It can be difficult to determine the best course of action for someone facing DUI charges. However, each move made during the course of legal proceedings could have major impacts on this Florida man's case. Because he undoubtedly does not want to make any wrong moves, he may find it in his best interests to utilize local legal resources in order to gain reliable information regarding the proceedings he will face and his defense options.
