California woman faces drunk driving charges related to accident

A woman has been placed under arrest in relation to a motor vehicle accident. She has been charged with felony drunk driving after police found her vehicle crashed and both her and her passenger injured. The prosecuting attorney will need to prove the woman, a California resident, was intoxicated at the time of the accident in order to convict her on the charges. 

The California Highway Patrol confirmed Monday, Oct. 16 that the woman had been charged as a result of the accident that occurred a week prior. The woman and her passenger were both ejected from the vehicle as a result of the crash and the fact that they were allegedly not wearing seat belts. Authorities responding to the scene found beer cans and a beer box inside the crashed vehicle. 

Both individuals suffered major injuries as a result of the crash and were taken to the hospital. No other details about their condition was available at the time. It was revealed that the woman had been arrested on felony drunk driving. Officials are still investigating the details of the crash. 

For the California woman, she is facing serious consequences if she is convicted of the charges. She is likely focused on building her defense against them. The truth of the incident has yet to be revealed, but the burden of proof will rest on the prosecuting attorney. Other individuals facing drunk driving charges in the state may be wondering what options are available to them for fighting the charges. Many individuals choose to use the services of a criminal defense attorney to build a strong case against criminal charges.
