Young man facing drunk driving charges in Texas

Police in Texas recently arrested a young man who is believed to have caused a fatal auto accident. Authorities claim this individual was impaired while behind the wheel. He is now facing drunk driving and other charges as a result.

It was recently reported that, a 20-year-old male was operating his vehicle in the Pasadena area when he collided with a vehicle at a local intersection. This individual is said to have then fled the scene on foot, but a witness stopped and detained him until police arrived. The driver of the impacted vehicle -- a 60-year-old male -- suffered fatal injuries in the wreck.

After a brief investigation, the young driver was arrested. He has been charged with DUI, speeding and failure to render aid. Authorities are also trying to determine if this individual ran a red light.

Drunk driving and accusations of drunk driving ruins lives. At just 20 years old, this individual could face the full brunt of the Texas criminal justice system if prosecuting attorneys can prove he was impaired leading to the death of the victim. If they succeed, he could spend years behind bars and face a number of other significant penalties. With his future on the line, the accused deserves the best criminal defense available. An experienced attorney can help him fight to protect his rights and his freedom by reviewing the finer details of his case, questioning any evidence offered against him and pursuing a legal course that will help him achieve the best outcome possible.
