Most every driver has experienced fatigue and drowsiness while behind the wheel. Often, even people who are relatively well-rested can feel their eyelids start to droop while driving.

Fatal Missouri crash leads to felony DWI charge

Depending on the area where a person lives, a person may spend a significant amount of time driving. Because it is such a common activity for many in Missouri, it may be easy to take for granted the potential for an accident that can cause significant damage, even if its cause was due to a mistaken turn. Unfortunately, police can easily interpret a mistake that caused an accident as a sign of intoxication, resulting in an accusation of DWI.

Car accidents can happen for a variety of different reasons. While sometimes it is a simple oversight or the result of poor judgment, police officers in Missouri and across the country may be quick to assume that alcohol was involved, especially if the driver involved is young and has a previous arrest on his or her record. Unfortunately, a young man was recently accused of drunk driving after a car accident.

Most drivers in Missouri and across the country have realized that a turn was steeper than expected, and their speed may be too fast. While drivers are typically able to adjust their speed with relatively few consequences, some may ultimately be involved in a crash. In fact, one man now faces multiple charges, including accusations of drunk driving, after his vehicle reportedly crashed on an exit ramp, resulting in the death of three children.

DWI charge follows Missouri motor vehicle collision

It is somewhat amazing to think that the only thing that protects drivers from oncoming traffic on some Missouri roads is relatively thin lines of paint. Any driver can accidentally cross over that line into oncoming traffic for a variety of different reasons.

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.
