Colorado man taken into custody for possible DUI accident

On Behalf of | Jan 1, 2014 | Drunk Driving, Firm News |

When an individual has an alcohol-related problem, they may not have the ability to make the most sound decisions when it comes to how much they should consume and what activities they should avoid after drinking. As a result, many individuals find themselves facing charges for DUI and other alcohol-related offenses. If a person is taken into custody on such allegations, they may wish to explore reliable information concerning their situation that could potentially help them receive the best outcome.

A Colorado man may be looking for such information after he was taken into custody after a fatal accident. The accident allegedly took place when the man was driving and lost control of the vehicle. His 21-year-old son, two other passengers and he were all ejected from the vehicle when it rolled and came to a crashing halt. The 21-year-old man reportedly died as a result of the accident.

The accused driver was taken into custody as authorities believe speed and alcohol were possibly factors that contributed to the fatal accident. It was not mentioned what led authorities to suspect the driver to have been under the influence at the time of the crash. It was noted, however, that the suspected driver had purportedly been released from jail before the crash where he had been held after failing to appear in court for other DUI-related charges.

The exact charges that the suspect could be facing were not given in the report. However, it is likely that DUI and other serious allegations could stem from the fatal accident. As a result, the accused driver may wish to learn more about the options available to him as far as handling potential charges. If alcohol misuse is determined to be a chronic problem for the suspect, he could possibly benefit more from a rehabilitation program rather than jail time, and he may wish to learn more about Colorado laws that could help him find a way to achieve that or other beneficial results.
