Drunk Driver Crashes Into Caltrans Construction Zone

Pictured Above: Crash Scene. Source: KTLA-TV.

Last week, a car full of minors slammed through a freeway closure in which a Caltrans crew was resurfacing lanes. The car was going 70 mph when it slammed into a tractor and then rolled over. Some of the passengers were ejected and all six people in the car were injured. None of the occupants were wearing seat belts and all of them were under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. The driver of the car was giving a field sobriety test and arrested at the scene.

Under California's Zero Tolerance Law, anyone under 21 years of age with a Blood Alcohol Content of 0.01% or greater will be charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI). If you are under 21 years old and suspected of driving under the influence, you have automatically consented to field sobriety tests. Punishments for a minor convicted of driving under the influence include a suspended license, jail time, alcohol abuse classes and fines. There are steeper penalties for minors under the influence who cause injuries to other passengers. Therefore, if you are charged with driving under the influence, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney right away to assist you.

A serious problem that need a DUI lawyer to explain and give better result on their DUI charges. Minors involved were less likely to administered by their parents and DUI lawyers to defend them in court. DUI lawyers help to minimize charges filed against them.
