When a driver has been drinking and is involved in an accident, the consequences can vary depending on the specific circumstances. If the DWI-related accident results in a fatality, the driver could face vehicular homicide charges. If the event doesn't result in any injuries, the driver could face less severe but still serious charges for DWI. There is also an array of situations that could occur between those two extremes, and a party may wish to learn more about how the outcomes will play into his legal situation.
Two Missouri men were injured in a single-car accident due to the driver allegedly being under the influence. According to reports, the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle, ran off the opposite side of the road and hit a tree. Purportedly, neither occupant of the car was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
