DUI defense: Fatal crash leads to DUI charges for Illinois driver

Illinois laws are tough on drunk driving, especially when DUI leads to an accident that causes grave or fatal injuries. In this situation, a driver could face criminal charges that, if convicted, could result in decades behind bars. Drivers facing these types of criminal allegations will need to focus on developing a strong criminal defense strategy. 

A recent fatal accident involving an allegedly intoxicated driver serves as a reminder of the consequences drivers can face if convicted of causing harm to others in a drunk driving accident. In this specific situation, the accused was behind the wheel when his vehicle crashed into a fire truck. The person who was riding in the front seat of the SUV died from injuries suffered in the crash. At the time of the accident, the fire truck was parked on the side of the road to help with another vehicle accident that happened earlier. 

The driver was also taken to the hospital for medical treatment. He is facing charges that include aggravated driving under the influence. He is presumed innocent until, and only if, proven guilty, and it is in his interests to seek guidance regarding how he can protect his constitutional rights and develop an appropriate defense strategy to confront the charges against him.

Aggravated DUI or any type of drunk driving charge in Illinois can lead to serious penalties that can affect virtually every area of life. Despite the nature of these charges, it is possible for a person to mount a strong and effective DUI defense. A driver has the right to protect his or her long-term interests and seek to mitigate the consequences he or she is facing.
