Man charged with drunk driving in North Carolina after crash

All drivers face distractions when behind the wheel. While it is possible to minimize some distractions -- such as avoiding using a phone -- others, such as young children in the vehicle, cannot be avoided. Unfortunately, accidents can happen even to the most safety-minded drivers. Despite this, a man now faces multiple criminal charges after police in North Carolina accused him of drunk driving.

The incident happened one afternoon on a day in late March. According to reports, the man was driving a sports utility vehicle when he allegedly crashed into a two-story brick building. Fire crews and EMS workers claim that the man was unconscious when they arrived at the scene; he was removed from the vehicle and transported to the hospital for treatment.

Reports also indicate that there was a 3-year-old boy in the vehicle's backseat who was also transported to the hospital. Law enforcement officials did not provide an update on their conditions. Details on the cause of the accident are also unclear.

Despite the lack of details surrounding the alleged drunk driving incident, the man now faces multiple charges, including felony child abuse, no operator's license and DWI. Despite the claims of law enforcement officers, those suspected of a crime are presumed innocent until -- and only if -- proved otherwise. To be convicted, there must be sufficient evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. An attorney with experience with such cases in North Carolina can help the man examine the evidence in the case against him and determine the most appropriate course of action, including whether to fight the charges in court or accept a plea deal, if offered.
