Ohio accident may lead to drunk driving arrest

Being involved in a car accident can lead to a considerable amount of stress for individuals. If authorities also believe that the driver may have been drinking before driving, the situation may become even more stressful. Individuals who have faced a drunk driving arrest may want to assess the situation and what it could mean for them legally. 

A man in Ohio may be hoping to find out more about his situation before being formally charged for OVI. It was reported that the man was allegedly involved in a single-car accident in which he suffered non-life threatening injuries. The incident purportedly took place when the driver apparently overcorrected the vehicle after it went off the side of the roadway, which led to it colliding with a tree.

Responding officers reportedly believed that the man was under the influence when the accident took place. It was not reported whether there was any specific evidence such as blood test results that may have supported those suspicions. At this time, authorities are looking to charge the individual with OVI as well as failure to control a vehicle.

Though the man has not been formally charged, he may still want to prepare in the event of a forthcoming drunk driving arrest. Gathering information on how his situation may move forward could help him prepare in case allegations are leveled against him. If such actions do occur, he could be at risk of having his license suspended or other negative outcomes. Therefore, seeking guidance about Ohio criminal proceedings for OVI may be beneficial.
