Criminal charges for DWI stem from head-on crash

After a car accident, authorities have a duty to investigate fully and apply the law as needed. In some cases, an investigation could result in police officers suspecting that alcohol or drugs played a role in the incident, and a driver could face criminal charges for DWI. If this happens, the accused person likely has a difficult path ahead.

One woman in North Carolina was recently taken into custody under such reported circumstances. Apparently, the woman was driving a vehicle west in the eastbound lane of a roadway. While allegedly traveling the wrong direction, the woman's vehicle collided head-on with another vehicle. The woman then reportedly tried to flee the scene of the accident, which took place around 11:30 p.m.

A person in the other vehicle suffered undisclosed injuries as a result of the incident. It was not mentioned whether the woman suffered injuries or how authorities apprehended her. Nonetheless, authorities believed her breath smelled of alcohol, and she allegedly admitted to drinking and driving. She now faces criminal charges including DWI, possession of marijuana and hit and run. She had a bond set at $4,000, but it was not mentioned whether she was still in custody at the time of the report.

This North Carolina woman likely did not anticipate her night ending in criminal charges for DWI, but now she has to handle the allegations. Any type of criminal case can be overwhelming to address, and her case may take a considerable amount of time before it comes to an end. Before she feels out of luck regarding her ordeal, she may want to remember that she has legal rights and can defend against the allegations as she sees fit.
