Driver crashes van into house, DUI charges filed in California

Drinking and driving is not a good idea. It can result in serious consequences, including bodily harm and even destruction of property. This is what happened following a recent vehicle crash in California that resulted in damage to a private residence. The driver was also charged with DUI.

The incident occurred at approximately 2:15 a.m. when a van apparently crashed into a house. The driver of the van was also transporting one passenger, according to reports released to the public by authorities. Both the driver and passenger were arrested. Besides the DUI charge, it is not yet known whether other charges will be filed against the two suspects.

The crash caused a gas line to rupture and resulted in authorities ordering precautionary evacuations of neighborhood residences. It took almost three hours for crews to remove the wreckage and fix the ruptured gas line. There have not been any reports of any injuries caused by the collision. It was also stated that there were no occupants in the home at the time of the crash.

All of these details may be important for the upcoming DUI case. The defendants will have to answer to the criminal charges in front of a California judge in a court of law. This means the defendants will need to be able to apply their knowledge of relevant laws to the facts of their own cases. Although this may be challenging, it is definitely doable and can even possibly result in charges being dismissed or penalties minimized.
