No one denies that driving while intoxicated can result in tragedy. That’s one of the reasons why it is so harshly prosecuted. That doesn’t mean that anyone accused of the crime, however, should immediately be given the worst possible sentence and be subjected to a lifetime of condemnation. Even those who get behind the wheel after drinking have the right to a defense, and they should get as strong a defense as possible.
A driver has been charged with DUI, along with other charges, in the case of a pedestrian who was killed in North Philadelphia.
Investigators say the 54-year-old victim was in the running lane, attempting to help a friend back up his truck, when the suspect’s car ran into him. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
According to investigators, the driver did not flee the scene and remained until the authorities arrived.
The 64-year-old suspect was arrested for DUI, and was subsequently charged with involuntary manslaughter, homicide by vehicle, homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, and other related charges.
