Man charged for Missouri drunk driving crash

A 59-year-old man was taken into custody in connection with a serious drunk driving accident. Police say that the man was driving on Highway 54 in an SUV that was also carrying his wife and son as passengers. The vehicle left the roadway, traveled through the median and struck another car that waiting to turn.

The man's wife and son were both transported to an area medical center to receive treatment for moderate injuries. Four individuals in the other car that was struck were also injured, and two of the four juveniles suffered serious injuries.

Officers believe that the man was intoxicated when the accident occurred. However, no information was provided in the report regarding his blood alcohol content lever nor which tests were used to determine that he was impaired. He was charged with six counts of second-degree assault, which are considered felonies. Additionally, he was charged with careless and imprudent driving while under the influence. It was not mentioned if the man had a previous history of impaired driving.

A lawyer assisting in the defense of an individual accused of intoxicated driving could evaluate the details of a police report while also noting the method to determine impairment. Since some methods of identifying a driver's BAC may be less reliable, a lawyer might endeavor to have the charges dismissed or reduced if test results were affected by a medical condition or improperly maintained equipment. An individual who is detained in a DWI case is not automatically presumed guilty.
