When a passenger is killed in a car accident, there is a possibility that the driver considered at fault for the accident could face criminal charges. If alcohol is considered a factor, such charges may become more likely. In such cases, a driver involved in a fatal DWI accident may wish to gain more knowledge on what the possible charges could mean and how those allegations may be addressed.
A 37-year-old driver in Missouri was recently taken into custody after a single-car accident resulted in injuries and a fatality. It was reported that the vehicle apparently left the roadway and crashed into multiple trees before coming to a stop. Additional details on the accident itself and how it occurred were not available at the time of the report.
