Georgia man likely preparing criminal defense for DUI charge

Operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or drugs can lead to a serious accident. In addition to the property damage or injuries one might cause, a person may also face potentially severe legal consequences, calling for the need to retain a criminal defense attorney. One Georgia man is now facing charges of driving under the influence and reckless driving after his alleged involvement in a nine-vehicle accident.

According to Georgia State Patrol, the man was driving a cargo van when he supposedly set off a chain reaction of crashes. For reasons that are still unclear, the man is said to have caused a collision with seven vehicles stopped for traffic in the road. He then allegedly hit another car parked in the nearby parking lot before crashing into the side of a Moe's Southwest Grill restaurant. 

In total, nine people were injured in the crashes on the roadway, and two others inside the restaurant also suffered injuries. None of the injuries were life-threatening, however. The Sheriff's Office has stated that the man has now been cited for driving under the influence of drugs as well as reckless driving. The police are continuing to investigate.

DUI and similar charges can lead to serious consequences if convictions are obtained. Anyone facing these charges may consider consulting an experienced Georgia criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after charges have been made. In addition to representing a person in court, an attorney could work toward achieving the best possible outcome for an individual's situation.
