According to authorities, an Ohio resident faces multiple charges related to two separate car accidents that occurred within the space of 20 minutes. The 51-year-old man, from New Waterford, struck an occupied vehicle in the parking lot of a B&B store and then drove away. The occupants of the vehicle called police to the scene.
While officers were investigating this car accident, the police received a separate call that the perpetrator’s truck had crashed on the Eastvale bridge. The officers in Beaver Falls charged the man with drunk driving, and for causing an accident hat involved property damage to an occupied vehicle.
When someone chooses to get behind the wheel of a car while drunk, they are making a decision to put their own lives and the lives of others at risk. Most DUI accidents are far worse than the incidents this man caused; victims of DUI accidents often face life-altering injuries, or the death of their loved one. While the law is good at punishing drunk drivers, it cannot compensate DUI victims for their injuries and losses after an accident. That’s where our attorneys at Robert W. Kerpsack Co., L.P.A. step in.
