Police accuse driver of DUI in crash that injured 2

Many drivers in Colorado would likely report having more difficulty seeing at night. When this limited visibility is combined with fatigue and flashing lights, it is easy to see how a driver could easily become disoriented. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers may be quick to assume that an accident under such circumstances is the result of a driver who is DUI rather than a relatively simple oversight.

In fact, police claim that DUI was a factor in a recent car accident that reportedly sent two police officers to the hospital. According to reports, one officer was conducting a traffic stop during the early morning hours of a day in February.  A second officer reportedly arrived at the scene to provide extra protection for the first.

Unfortunately, police say that the driver of another vehicle struck the second police vehicle in the rear. That police car then moved forward, striking the first. Unfortunately, the second police car struck one of the officers where he was standing; the other officer was inside his vehicle. Both were transported to the hospital where they were treated and released.

Details about the driver believed to have struck the law enforcement vehicle in Colorado -- including his or her identity and any criminal charges that may be filed -- are unclear. Because police suspect that DUI was a factor in the accident, the driver may want to consult with a criminal defense attorney. With the guidance of such a professional, the driver may have more confidence in the information provided to police as the incident is investigated and if DUI charges should arise from the accident.
