Over the weekend, DUI’s come into the spotlight with Reese Witherspoon’s rant over her husband’s DUI questioning and a DUI for music group 3 Doors Down bassist which caused a fatal interstate crash. Additionally in Las Vegas this weekend, Las Vegas DUI lawyers note that driving under the influence resulted in the death of one driver and left another in critical condition. If you have been injured, contact an accident lawyer Las Vegas motorists can rely on for help with your car accident.
The Las Vegas fatal accident took place near Home Depot Drive and Craig Road, when a 27-year-old driver of a Hyundai SUV rear-ended a Ford sedan, causing the sedan to strike a light pole. The 54-year-old male driver of the sedan died at the scene of the accident. The driver of the SUV was arrested and charged with one felony count of DUI with Death.
The other accident was when a motorcyclist driving under the influence rear-ended an SUV at South Decatur Boulevard and West Tropicana Avenue. The SUV was stopped at a red traffic light when the 36-year-old motorcyclist hit it. The motorcyclist was thrown to the road and was soon transported to UMC with critical injuries.
These tragic accidents could have been avoided it the drivers planned ahead and designated a driver or called a taxi after they had been drinking. Las Vegas DUI lawyers remind that driving under the influence is not only illegal, but it can have life altering consequences.
