Colorado traffic accident leads to DUI charge

There are multiple distractions while driving. Something as simple as changing the radio station can be all it takes to distract a driver. Unfortunately, it may be easy to assume that an accident was the result of a driver who is under the influence of alcohol. For example, a man was recently charged with DUI, among other charges, after he was reportedly involved in a traffic accident in Colorado.

The incident that led to the charges against the man reportedly happened around 3:30 p.m. on a day in January. According to reports, a 47-year-old male driver lost control of his vehicle while driving on a Colorado roadway. Unfortunately, the vehicle allegedly jumped a median and crossed into oncoming traffic.

As a result, his vehicle is said to have struck on oncoming sedan. The sedan then struck a sports utility vehicle. While both the man and two occupants of the sedan were transported to the hospital, the nature of their injuries is unclear. Though police say that the man was under the influence of alcohol, it is unclear what led them to this conclusion or what evidence supports their claim.

In addition to the DUI charges, the driver is also accused of careless driving and vehicular assault. Unfortunately, charges such as this can have long-term consequences, potentially impacting a person's ability to work. To ensure that he is fully aware of the options available to him following the Colorado accident, he may want to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney who is committed to guiding him as he navigates the criminal justice system.
