Everyone deserves to have their side of the story told. All too often, guilt is simply assumed when it comes to the possibility of drunk driving. There are a great many mitigating circumstances that few every account for, which can easily be overlooked if the defendant does not have a competent and skilled DUI defense attorney on his or her side. DUI law can be a complicated thing and it takes a keen legal mind to sort it out to the defendant’s benefit.
A SEPTA police officer was injured when his vehicle was struck by an alleged drunk driver.
The officer was in the Old City section of Philadelphia around 4 in the morning when a white SUV slammed into his car. The impact was hard enough to drive the officer’s cruiser into a light post and up onto the curb.
An unidentified driver was arrested for drunk driving. Media reports say the driver had a blood alcohol level of .149, which is twice the legal limit.
The officer did not suffer any life-threatening injuries. After the accident, he was transported to Jefferson Hospital where he was listed in stable condition and continues to recover.
The driver of the SUV was uninjured.
