Criminal charges follows fatality in suspected DUI accident

A 25-year-old woman died in a suspected drunk driving accident in Colorado on a recent Sunday afternoon. A 47-year-old man is now facing several criminal charges after he allegedly caused a crash that led to the woman's death. Reportedly, the incident that happened at an intersection in Lakewood involved several vehicles.

According to Lakewood police, the woman's car was stationary at a red traffic light when the alleged drunk driver in a pickup truck approached at a high rate of speed. Police say he failed to slow down and smashed into the rear of the stopped car. The impact pushed her car into the intersection, directly into the path of other vehicles. Three more cars became involved in the accident.

The woman was rushed to an area hospital, but she succumbed to her injuries later. There were no reports about any injuries suffered by the occupants of the three other vehicles. The pickup truck driver was also hospitalized for treatment of injuries, and police arrested him later. Lakewood police confirmed that this man had at least six prior DUI arrests on his record.

The arrest record indicates that the pickup truck driver was jailed and now faces criminal charges that include suspicion of DUI and felony DUI, vehicular homicide, a protection order violation and reckless driving. Others in Colorado who face similar charges usually seek the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney. A lawyer can protect the rights of the defendant during questioning and throughout ensuing legal proceedings. The attorney can devise a defense strategy and advocate for the defendant in pursuit of the best possible outcome.
