Accident in Oklahoma leads to drunk driving arrest

When a car accident looks suspicious, authorities may start to think that impairment was a possible factor. Of course, law enforcement officers need probable cause before they can arrest a person for drunk driving. Nonetheless, individuals could easily wind up in this type of situation, and they may need help when it comes to dealing with criminal charges.

One person in Oklahoma may be considering legal defense options after recently being taken into custody. The report provided only few details on the incident, but apparently, a driver left the roadway, and in a photo from the scene, it appears that the incident occurred across from a gas station. The report did state that the car came to a stop against a gas meter.

Information regarding the person driving the vehicle was not disclosed. It was reported that the incident occurred around 3 a.m. and that no injuries resulted from the crash. Authorities did take the driver into custody on suspicion of DUI. The situation is likely still under investigation, and more information may become available at a later time.

Any time someone faces allegations of drunk driving, he or she is dealing with a serious legal predicament. It could then prove wise to explore viable ways in which to meaningfully address the charges. In order to do so, Oklahoma residents facing this type of situation may wish to become more knowledgeable on their criminal defense options. Additionally, parties may want to consider consulting with experienced attorneys who could potentially help advise and guide concerned parties through their criminal proceedings.
