2 DEAD IN SUSPECTED DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT IN NEVADA

Two people are dead and another man is in custody following a suspected DUI-related accident. Nevada Highway Patrol have not released the identities of the two individuals who were killed in the accident. However, they have indicated their intention to charge the other driver involved in the accident with drunk driving.

According to the accident report, a vehicle was either in the process of slowing down or had come to a complete stop when it was rear-ended by another vehicle around 10 p.m. the night of April 23. Two people in the struck vehicle were rushed to local hospitals where they later died of their injuries. Their identities have not been released, pending the notification of next-of-kin.

The other driver is alleged to have fled on foot from the scene, but he was later recovered and taken to a local hospital for treatment. He now faces charges of DUI resulting in death, hit-and-run, and a number of other misdemeanor charges. He has been booked into jail as of this report.

It will be up to the Nevada prosecution to prove to the court that the man was drunk behind the wheel of his vehicle when the accident occurred. Tests for drunk driving charges, including blood and Breathalyzer tests, are not 100 percent foolproof and can sometimes give back misleading or even incorrect indications of intoxication at the time of an accident. Conducting such a test later can skew the results against a defendant. The defense may choose to consider this when preparing for this case.

Skillful Defense Against Any Type Of PCS Or Marijuana Possession Charge

My only concern is securing the best available result for each client I serve. I am diligent If you are found in possession of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, marijuana, a medication for which you have no doctor's prescription, club drugs or drug paraphernalia, I will present the strongest possible case to show that the drugs were not yours or that the police had no grounds to perform the search that led to the discovery of the drugs.

If the prosecution has compelling evidence in your case, I will pursue every available option in an effort to avoid a conviction on your record. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible negotiate 3363 treatment that would allow for your case to be dismissed after you complete court-ordered classes or drug treatment.
