DUI charge leveled against man in fatal Virginia accident

When an individual is facing criminal charges, he or she may not always know what his or her immediate actions should be. If parties are confused about how to handle allegations for DUI or other accusations, they could work to gain more knowledge regarding their particular predicament. The decisions that will likely need to be made can have considerable impacts, and individuals will not want to take the process lightly.

One person in Virginia may be exploring information relating to his case after recently being taken into custody. Reports stated that the man was driving a vehicle with three passengers in the back seat when he apparently lost control after trying to avoid another car. As a result, his vehicle flipped, and the three passengers were thrown from the vehicle.

A 22-year-old female was killed in the accident, and the two other passengers were seriously injured. It was unclear whether the driver was injured. Nonetheless, authorities believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash, and the driver is currently facing charges for DUI and felony manslaughter. It was unclear whether the man was still in custody at the time of the report.

Fatal accidents can be harrowing in and of themselves, and when a driver is accused of DUI and/or other allegations, he or she may be even more devastated. If the man charged in this Virginia case wishes to defend against the charges brought against him, he may want to explore his legal options for creating and presenting a criminal defense. By preparing alongside experienced legal counsel, the man may feel more confident moving forward with his case.
