When police are looking to charge someone with DUI, they need evidence. The obvious ways to do that is to ask for field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and examination of the driver for signs of drunkenness. But when a crash is severe enough, the police might arrest people on the suspicion of intoxication because the crash evidence makes it hard to believe that someone would get into a wreck that bad.
An example of this happened as reported by NBC Los Angeles in Winnetka. Two separate crash scenes on Oso Avenue were caused by the same driver according to the police. At the first scene, the alleged drunk driver crashed into several cars before leaving the scene. The second crash was so rough that the police had to use a hydraulic cutter to extract the victims. Multiple people had to be hospitalized.
Why would someone crash into multiple vehicles in two different locations? The most likely reason is intoxication and it’s a good enough reason for police to arrest you. But there could be other reasons. That’s what a DUI attorney will investigate and present before the court. Without a DUI attorney, you’re facing the court alone. That’s not a position you want to be in!
