Man charged with DWI after Oklahoma car accident

Police say a 29-year-old man admitted to consuming three or four beers at a bowling alley in Tulsa before causing a crash on Jan. 29. The accident took place while the man was driving north on Highway 169 around 9:45 p.m. According to a witness, the man drove his sedan past an SUV and then slammed on the brakes.

Although the SUV tried to swerve to avoid a collision, it hit the right rear of the sedan. The collision caused the SUV to hit a median and roll at least five times, according to witness statements. According to the witness, the sedan spun out of control before the man drove away from the scene. However, the witness was able to follow the driver and call 911 for police assistance.

Police ultimately caught up to the man and took him into custody. Although he initially struggled with police, he did consent to a breath and blood test. Police charged him with DUI, reckless driving and resisting arrest. The driver also faces an additional charge of child endangerment, as there was a child in the car with him at the time of the incident. He was being held at the Tulsa County jail on $39,500 bond.

A driver who faces a DUI charge may receive jail time, license suspension or a fine if convicted. However, a DUI defense attorney may be able to help a driver avoid some or all of the penalties related to the charge. It may be possible for an attorney to argue that witness testimony was not reliable or that the results of a blood or breath test were taken or handled improperly.
