DUI suspected in Colorado crash that injured trooper

Most people would likely agree that police officers and other law enforcement officials put their lives on the line every day when they report to work. As a result, when it is believed that an officer was a victim of a crime, it seems that the general public and law enforcement are determined to hold someone accountable, regardless of the evidence. For example, it is unclear what supports the claim that DUI was involved in an accident that injured a Colorado State Patrol trooper.

The incident happened around 1 a.m. on a day in April. According to reports, a member of the Colorado State Patrol had stopped on Interstate 25 as a result of a disabled vehicle. The trooper's identity has not been released.

Reports indicate that the trooper was in his vehicle when it was struck, allegedly by a vehicle driven by a 50-year-old man. The trooper was transported to the hospital but has since been released. He is expected to recover.

The driver of the vehicle who reportedly struck the trooper's is suspected of failure to yield to an emergency vehicle, careless driving and DUI. Despite the allegations against the man, it is unclear why it is suspected that he was under the influence or what evidence supports the claim. Unfortunately, it is easy for those driving at night to become disoriented by lights, for example, without the involvement of alcohol. An experienced criminal defense professional can help the man fully understand the options available to him as a result of the allegations against him.
