Man injured in Missouri accident accused of DWI

Car accidents can happen to anyone at any time. Unfortunately, those driving late at night who may be experiencing fatigue may be especially at risk of being involved in an accident. However, a person's behavior following a crash caused by a simple mistake could easily be misinterpreted by law enforcement officials who may already be primed to assume the worst. In fact, it is unclear what evidence supports claims that a driver who was recently injured in a Missouri car accident was driving while intoxicated, or DWI.

The incident is said to have happened just after 11 p.m. on a day in early January. Reports indicate that a 23-year-old driver fell asleep while at the wheel of a pickup truck. The truck reportedly crossed the centerline before exiting the left side of the road. The vehicle reportedly came to a stop after it struck a ditch and rolled.

Unfortunately, police in Missouri and across the country may be quick to assume that a mistake was actually due to DWI.

Unfortunately, a woman is now facing criminal charges following an accident. Police say that the woman crashed her minivan into a Missouri Chinese restaurant around 4 p.m. on a day in late November. Witnesses claim that they advised the driver to turn off her vehicle when she attempted to reverse out of the store.
