Possible DUI charges in Oklahoma accident

A man may face DUI charges following an accident in Tulsa on May 3 that left another driver and one child injured. The accident happened around 2:30 a.m. Both vehicles involved were traveling southbound on Highway 169.

Allegedly, a Nissan pickup truck hit the SUV after swerving on the highway. While the pickup truck landed right-side up after colliding with the concrete barrier in the center, the SUV landed on its roof. The man driving the SUV and his child passenger were both taken to the hospital though the extent of their injuries was unknown. The driver of the pickup was taken into custody after the accident.

Since the driver of the truck was suspected of drunk driving, he may have been given field sobriety tests on the scene, or he may have taken a breath test. It is also a possibility that he refused these tests altogether. Police officers will likely have noticed any traits indicative of intoxication, whether or not that could have included slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and the smell of alcohol or open containers in the vehicle. If the man was not intoxicated, he could have also been under the influence of other substances as well.

Individuals in a similar circumstance may wish to consult an attorney. Once the Nissan driver is charged, the approach to his defense will largely depend upon details such as the charges and the evidence gathered to support them. The severity of the violations may also depend upon whether this was the driver's first offense. A plea bargain might be an option if the defense attorney feels that negotiating with the prosecution is possible.
