Criminal defense: Accident involving moped leads to DUI charges

Charges for driving under the influence of alcohol can have serious consequences if a conviction is obtained. Operating any manner of vehicle while intoxicated can lead to similar charges. Those who face such allegations often find it advisable to seek advice from a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. A 39-year-old man in Georgia is facing multiple charges, including DUI, after he was allegedly involved in an accident while operating a moped.

Police claim the accident took place when the driver of a moped suddenly crossed into oncoming traffic. An oncoming truck reportedly swerved in an attempt to avoid collision, but the moped slammed into its side. While the driver of the truck was apparently uninjured, the man on the moped was airlifted to the hospital for treatment.

He is currently facing numerous charges in relation to the incident, including driving under the influence. It is unclear how intoxication was determined, as there was no indication of the performance of field sobriety or breath tests, which may have been due to his injuries. Although his condition was not given, a potential period of recovery may not be his only concern moving forward.

Those who are accused of driving under the influence often seek to protect themselves from potentially catastrophic consequences, but the process can be stressful and intimidating. However, one does not have to go through it alone, and retaining the services of an attorney could be beneficial. Through thorough examination of the charges and evidence, a criminal defense attorney can advise a client in Georgia on the potential consequences and outcomes, as well as the best course of action to take moving forward.
