Connecticut police charged a 29-year-old woman for drunken driving, and then booked again her for driving drunk when they spotted her behind the wheel less than three hours later.
Our car accident lawyers in San Diego handle cases where drunk driving causes car accidents too many times. It takes a rare brand of human being to get arrested for drinking and driving once and then gets charged with another DUI only hours after the first one.
This woman of South Windsor, Connecticut belongs in this special category.
Luckily for her and the other motorists on the road, two DUIs were the only results of her actions and her negligent driving did not cause a drunk driving car accident or a wrongful death automobile accident.
Farmington police said they arrested the woman shortly after 1 a.m. on April 20, 2009 citing her blood-alcohol content as more than twice the legal limit. Police charged her with driving under the influence, confiscated her license and suspended her driving privileges for 24 hours.
Authorities released the woman on bond, thinking that she was getting a ride home from a friend. Shortly before 4 a.m. another officer pulled her over about a half-mile from where she was first arrested and charged her with another DUI.
Our San Diego car accident lawyers know that not all drunk driving accidents turn out like this. The majority of drunk driving car accidents result in personal injury, pain and suffering, and wrongful death auto accidents.
