One man has been critically injured when he was struck by a driver allegedly under the influence of alcohol early Monday morning.
Authorities say that the accident happened just before 2:00 a.m. in the city’s Olney section while the victim was attempting to cross 5th street at the intersection of Ruscomb.
Police arrived at the scene and arrested the 62-year-old driver for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
The victim, whose identity has not been released, was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center where he is currently listed in critical condition.
Even in the face of a seemingly hopeless situation, there can be any number of factors that can cast doubt on a DUI case. A good defense attorney knows that if there were any mistakes that have been made regarding DUI evidence, it can cast a shadow of doubt on the charges. In some cases, if the mistakes were egregious enough, motions can be filed that may substantially reduce the charges or get them dismissed altogether.
