A Proven Leader In Illinois Criminal Defense And Real Estate Law

DUI charges filed for single-vehicle wreck

An Illinois woman was recently arrested following a single-vehicle accident in which no one was injured. Police believe that she was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the wreck. She is facing multiple criminal charges, including aggravated DUI and one count for endangering a child's life. She is also charged with a second DUI for having a BAC higher than 08%.

Police claim that on the morning of June 4, 2020, the 37-year-old woman was intoxicated while behind the wheel of her vehicle. There was a 4-year-old child who was also in the vehicle at the time, but he or she was the woman's only passenger. It is not clear whether there is a familial relationship between the two.

At approximately 7:45 a.m., the woman's vehicle veered off the roadway and hit some nearby bushes. Her vehicle then rolled over onto its roof. The young child did not suffer any injuries and was released to his or her family members. The driver was not injured either and was arrested at the scene of the crash.

Drunk driving allegations are quite serious in Illinois, especially for defendants who have DUI charges for a BAC above the legal limit of .08%. Additional charges involving the safety of minors can exacerbate a defendant's legal circumstances, putting him or her at risk for lengthy jail time and steep fines. Taking a proactive approach to this difficult situation is usually a good idea. This includes working on a strong criminal defense in as timely a manner as possible and seeking expert guidance when necessary.
