Louisville drunk driving charges filed after claimed hit-and-run

Drunk driving charges were filed recently in Louisville against a Kentucky man  when the 39-year-old individual collided with two cars near the intersection of Fenwick Creek Place and South Hurstbourne Parkway.

One of the drivers involved in the accident was sent to the Suburban Hospital with what were claimed to be serious injuries. No further word on his condition was released. Police also allege the man did not stop at the scene of the allegeddrunk driving accident, but that his car became incapacitated “about a mile down the road.”

When he was interviewed by police, the man admitted to having had two whiskey drinks at a local movie theater. Police say they performed several field sobriety tests, which the man did not pass. There is no indication that a blood-alcohol test was administered.

Criminal charges of assault, wanton endangerment, leaving the scene of an accident and DUI were pressed. No further information was initially revealed and the man will now presumably gather himself to defend the allegations made against him.

The possible consequences are severe when a drunk driving accident seriously injures another person. Every element of the police allegations requires review to prepare an aggressive defense not only to protect an individual’s legal rights, but to reach the most favorable result. A Kentucky attorney devoted to helping those charged with drunk driving charges may help plan a spirited defense to gain a just resolution. Drunk driving charges are difficult to fight, but it is not an impossible task.
