Single-car crash on Halloween night leads to DUI charges

During holiday weekends, law enforcement agents may be on high alert for certain types of behavior. When a motor vehicle accident occurs on a holiday, those investigating the incident could be more inclined to suspect the presence of wrongful behavior. A recent single-vehicle collision that is said to have taken place on Halloween night in South Carolina has reportedly left a 21-year-old man in custody facing DUI charges.

Authorities say they responded to reports of the incident at around 11:30 p.m. on Oct. 31. Upon arriving at the scene, they claim to have found a vehicle partially submerged in a nearby lake and a man sitting by the edge of the water. While investigating the incident, they say that a witness came forward and told them that he or she saw the man exit the vehicle and swim to the shore shortly after the incident occurred.

According to reports, the man informed police that he was riding as a passenger in the vehicle when it veered off course and ran into the lake. After allegedly being unable to locate anyone else who could have been involved in the incident and determining the man to be exhibiting signs of impairment, they began to administer field sobriety tests. He was taken into custody soon thereafter on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Those who stand accused of DUI charges following a motor vehicle collision may feel somewhat intimidated by the experience and uncertain of how best to handle the situation. When facing similar charges, a person in South Carolina could benefit from retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible for guidance. An attorney can examine the incident, along with the charges and evidence against a client, and assist in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent legal proceedings.
