Young driver arrested for suspected DUI in California

Bad decisions can be costly in many aspects of life. Deciding to drive after drinking alcohol is no exception to this rule. Unfortunately, it is possible that one young man may have made this mistake in a recent car accident. The young motorist is now facing DUI charges in California that could result in serious injuries if the case ends in a drunk driving conviction.

The young teenager was driving his vehicle one morning in early December when he somehow ended up crashing his car. The 19-year-old motorist was driving his white Ford Focus at approximately 2:20 a.m. when the incident happened. Two other male passengers were also present in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Apparently, the vehicle crashed into a tree, which caused the vehicle to catch on fire.

The two male passengers were discovered lying on the road when the police arrived upon the scene. The passengers' ages were 18 and 19 respectively. Both of the passengers were taken to the local hospital to receive treatment for their injuries. Authorities arrested the driver at the scene of the crash.

Now the driver will need to think about responding to the DUI charges he will be facing in the court of law in California. There could be various legal defense strategies available depending upon the evidence and testimony submitted by the prosecution. Close examination of these items can present the defense the possibility of exposing inconsistencies in the prosecution's arguments. However, this will require significant knowledge of relevant laws.
