Police claim drunk driving factor in fatal Minnesota crash

Even the most vigilant of drivers can become involved in a car accident. Something as simple as a conversation with a passenger can be a sufficient distraction to cause an accident. Despite this, police in Minnesota believe that a recent fatal crash was the result of drunk driving.

The incident happened just after midnight on a day in June. According to reports, a vehicle containing a 43-year-old male driver and at least two passengers struck a tree. When police officers arrived at the scene, the driver and one passenger were reportedly standing outside the vehicle and notified the officer of an injured passenger in the back seat.

That passenger was transported to the hospital, but he passed away. A law enforcement officer claimed to have detected the odor of alcohol coming from the driver of the vehicle who reportedly told the officer that he had consumed two classes of wine an hour before the accident. A preliminary breath test was administered and allegedly revealed that the man's blood alcohol content was significantly over the legal limit.

As a result of the belief that the accident was caused by drunk driving, the man now faces a serious legal situation, including a charge of criminal vehicular homicide. Often, those in Minnesota facing criminal charges lack confidence in their ability to make informed decisions. However, with an experienced legal professional on their side, they often feel as if they have the information they need to make the choices that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of their lives.
