Many of the stories of DUI that hit the national news wires are quite tragic. The evidence in these cases can also be very strong. A national news agency does not want to get egg on their face by making an incorrect assessment of a situation. Here’s an example of one of these DUI stories.
The accident happened in Bucks County, PA. A woman was driving just before Halloween last year down Highway 13. She was on a divided highway. Suddenly, a car hit her head-on and sent her car down into a ravine. She died at the scene.
The driver of the other car struck so hard that the roof had to be cut away to get him out of the vehicle. He has been charged with homicide by vehicle DUI and other offenses. His BAC was three times the legal limit. Five weeks before this crash, he pled guilty to another drunk driving incident. His bail was set at $250,000.
Thankfully, most people arrested for DUI do not have such horrifying circumstances. Many people arrested are not even legally DUI.
