Missouri man accused of DWI following pedestrian accident

When a person is involved in a car accident, he or she often panics in the aftermath, potentially causing him or her to react in a way that is otherwise out of character. While this panic may be understandable, it could potentially lead to serious legal implications. In fact, a man in Missouri now faces criminal charges, including DWI, after police say he fled the scene of an accident.

The incident that led to the man's arrest reportedly happened on a day in November. According to reports, the man struck two pedestrians while driving on a Missouri roadway. Police say that he did not remain at the scene, but police were able to take him into custody after someone followed him.

Officers say that they immediately launched an investigation when they encountered him, which included field sobriety tests. Though they say he performed poorly on these tests, details about them are unclear. He allegedly waived his Miranda rights and admitted to hitting the pedestrians with his vehicle and drinking before the accident happened. Law enforcement officers obtained a warrant to perform a blood test.

Though reports indicate that the man has previous DWI convictions on his record, it appears that the most recent conviction was approximately 20 years ago. In addition to the drunk driving allegation, the man is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Unfortunately, many people who face criminal accusations in Missouri may not fully realize the implications of the information they provide police during the early stages of an investigation. As such, having an experienced criminal defense attorney providing guidance is beneficial.
