On September 4, 2017, an accident involving an alleged DUI driver left several people injured. The driver was a 23 year old male who had a passenger and allegedly turned in front of an SUV causing a head on collision. The accident took place on Highway 395. Unfortunately, the SUV had 3 children in the vehicle as well. Thankfully there were no fatalities in this accident.
Was the driver arrested?
According to KHQ, vehicular assault charges are pending. Police often charge DUI drivers with vehicular assault when they injured someone while allegedly driving under the influence or when they were allegedly driving recklessly with “disregard to the safety of others”.
Please also note that a personal injury claim is different than criminal charges.
