Drunk driving charges leveled against injured Oklahoma driver

When dealing with accusations of driving under the influence of alcohol, a case can seem overwhelming. Though charges for drunk driving are not uncommon, each case is different. Rather than feeling out of hope, individuals may wish to remember that information on their legal options is available.

One man in Oklahoma recently found himself in such a predicament. Reportedly, the man was driving when his vehicle collided with another. However, the man purportedly continued traveling before his vehicle crashed into a ditch and caught fire. Authorities came to the scene when an officer noticed the smoke from the car fire. The officer then extracted the man from the vehicle.

After the officer got the man out, he purportedly noticed that the driver smelled of alcohol. The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle, and he was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries. Charges of DUI were pending against the man while he was being treated at the hospital. Additional information on the situation may become available at a later time.

Drunk driving charges can have a serious effect on a person's life, and the man accused in this Oklahoma incident will certainly want to address his allegations in the best manner possible. In order to determine what he considers to be his best option, the man may want to obtain more information on various criminal defense strategies. Utilizing local legal resources could help him ensure that he obtains useful knowledge as well as assistance if he wishes.
