A 29 year-old woman was involved in an accident on February 20 on N. Route 83. She was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and is expect to appear in court this week.
This suspected drunk driving crash is a reminder of the danger of mixing alcohol with driving. Drunk drivers may be injured or may injure occupants of another vehicle. Additionally, a drunk driver may face criminal charges as well as a civil lawsuit for injuries and damages caused by the accident.
In addition to her DUI charge, the 29 year-old woman was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and for operating an uninsured vehicle. Drunk drivers are more likely to have delayed reflexes than sober drivers and may not react in time to avoid a costly accident.
