Drunk driving suspected in fatal offroading crash in Missouri

An accident that results in a fatality is always a tragedy. Unfortunately, some accidents can not only result in grieving friends and family but also in criminal charges. In fact, a family is Missouri is now grieving the death of an 11-year-old while a man is accused of drunk driving in the accident that allegedly resulted in her death.

The incident happened during the early morning hours of a day in mid-August. According to reports, the 11-year-old was riding on an off-road vehicle driven by a 31-year-old man. The man reportedly lost control, causing the vehicle to strike a tree. The girl was thrown and ultimately pinned underneath the vehicle.

She was transported to the hospital but passed away as a result of injuries suffered in the collision. Police claim that the man admitted to consuming alcohol both before and after the accident. His blood alcohol content was reportedly over the legal limit 90 minutes after the accident happened. He has since been charged with involuntary manslaughter.  

Due to the belief that the man was drunk driving at the time of the Missouri accident, he now faces serious consequences if convicted of the charges against him. When faced with a confrontation with law enforcement officers, some people may not be fully aware that the information that they provide could implicate them. As such, many people who are facing questioning by police want an experienced criminal defense attorney on their side as they do so. Such a professional can guide them throughout the process of the criminal justice system.
