Man faces DUI charge following vehicle accident

A motor vehicle crash recently led to the DUI arrest of one man in California. The accident took place on a Monday afternoon. The man facing a DUI charge is 35 years old.

The rollover accident took place along Highway 101. It occurred in the lanes heading north. According to police, the man was speeding and driving while intoxicated, though further details were not reported.

Apparently, the man's truck struck another vehicle and overturned. The man suffered injuries in the crash and was transported to a hospital. Police then took him into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as possessing drug paraphernalia, the nature of which was not further described. The person driving the car he reportedly struck suffered no injuries in the crash.

Those facing a DUI charge have the right to go to trial to fight the charges if they consider it to be in their best interest to do so. At trial, prosecutors at trial must prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt before any criminal conviction is possible. In some situations, the weight of the prosecutor's potential evidence suggests that it may be wise for the defendant to seek to negotiate a plea deal; if available, it might result in lesser charges or a lighter sentence from the California court. The criminal defense will push for an outcome that is ultimately in the accused person's best interest while also fighting to make sure that all applicable legal rights are upheld at all stages of the California criminal proceedings.
