Woman accused of injuring and fleeing the scene of DUI accident

Sometimes, people follow one bad decision with another, not realizing that their actions have consequences that could follow them for the rest of their life. When this happens, it is important to remember that someone suspected of committing a crime has the right to legal counsel who could help him or her get his or her version of the events out in the public.

A woman facing serious drunk driving charges resulting from a drunk driving accident in Worcester has allegedly made a number of bad decisions that resulted in her arrest. According to the police, she struck a 45-year-old man while he was walking and attempting to cross north.

Police also contend that the 41-year-old female driver only paused for a couple of moments before carrying on into a parking lot, where she allegedly threw a little bit of whiskey under her car. Police officers also claim that her eyes were bloodshot, she smelled of alcohol and she failed a field sobriety tests. After initially denying she had had some alcohol, she allegedly admitted that she had a little.

According to reports, she was arrested and faces the following charges: failure to yield to pedestrian in the roadway, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and operating under the influence resulting in serious injury.

As mentioned previously, when someone is arrested on suspicion of committing a crime such as DUI or OUI, they should not forget that they have constitutional rights that protect them and should be availed in those circumstances. Speaking to an experienced attorney before anyone else can help an accused prepare an aggressive defense and determine how to best protect their rights.
