A 58-year-old man is dead following an accident police believe to have been predicated by drunk driving, according to local sources. The man, who was struck by another individual on an off-road vehicle, was killed around 1:30 a.m. the morning of Feb. 21. The individual believed responsible for the accident has been charged with DUI among other charges.

Little is known about the accident that claimed the life of the 58-year-old man. However, it has been alleged that he was struck from behind by the driver of a recreational off-road vehicle while riding his bicycle near Interstate 15 in Nevada. The man was pronounced dead soon after the accident.

The driver of the off-road vehicle, a 28-year-old man, has apparently been hospitalized with several injuries described as being non life-threatening. He now faces several charges being filed against him by Nevada police. These charges include driving under the influence causing death, driving without a license and failure to yield to a bicycle.

It will be the province of the Nevada prosecution to prove beyond any sort of reasonable doubt that the driver of the off-road vehicle was drunk at the time of the accident in order for the DUI charge to be admissible in court. No mention was made in the report of any roadside sobriety testing that may have taken place. If that testing was not conducted, or if it was conducted in a manner inconsistent with the rights of the individual, any evidence gleaned from this testing could be deemed inadmissible in court.

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.
