Drinking alcohol is a common practice for many people as a way to further enjoy social situations or to relax after a long day. Making the choice to drive after doing so, however, might result in drunk driving and/or other charges. One Minnesota man now faces multiple charges after his alleged participation in a recent car accident that resulted in the death of another man.
Few details of the accident have been released at this time. The collision is said to have occurred on a highway in northern Minnesota. Authorities claim that the man struck and killed a person with his vehicle. They further state that after the crash, the man supposedly fled the scene.
Officers reportedly located the man at his home. He was allegedly intoxicated when they found him. Police said that he was driving under a canceled license, which he has purportedly been convicted for six times previously. He is now charged with criminal vehicular homicide and has been placed in jail.
Due to the serious nature of the charges this man faces, he is likely working with an attorney to defend against these accusations. Being charged with a crime can be a difficult and stressful experience for anyone to deal with due to the complexities involved in the legal process. Whether someone is charged with drunk driving or other illegal activities, a skilled Minnesota attorney could assist those facing charges move forward with the courtroom matters in an attempt to clear their name or reduce any potential sentences.
