Drunk driving cause of 3-car accident, according to police

Anytime one is involved in a car accident, New Hampshire law enforcement officers investigate what happened in an attempt to determine the facts and decide who or what ultimately caused the accident. As a part of this investigation, they analyze the accident site. In addition to this analysis, they talk to and observe those involved in an attempt to determine if drunk driving was a contributing factor.

Recently, a 21-year-old woman crashed her pickup truck into another truck that was stopped at an intersection. The impact of this crash caused the truck to then crash into a car. In addition to causing damage to the vehicles involved, both pickup truck drivers were injured and transported to local hospitals.

Law enforcement officers claim to have found indicators of both drug and alcohol use in the 21-year-old's truck. In addition, they state that there was a warrant in place for her failure to appear in court. The woman is now charged with drunk driving in addition to the previous charges that she apparently had incurred.

Information pertaining to this situation does not specify exactly what led officers to believe that drugs or alcohol had been used in the truck. In addition, no information regarding the driver's blood alcohol level was reported. These are just a few of the factors that a defense attorney will want to review prior to the accused appearing in a New Hampshire court of law. Drunk driving charges can have a lasting effect upon the accused; it is important that the evidence is properly reviewed and the rights of the defendant are fully protected.
