Alabama woman faces multiple criminal charges for fatal wreck

Drunk driving charges are a serious matter in Alabama, but these allegations can be complicated by additional charges. For instance, if a person is accused of causing an accident while under the influence of alcohol, the accused may face additional criminal charges that have potentially severe consequences. This is apparently the case for an Alabama woman accused of causing a fatal accident.

The accident in question occurred nearly a year ago in April 2018. However, police did not issue an arrest warrant for the three counts related to the wreck until Feb. 21, 2019. This is not her first arrest, though, as after fleeing the scene of the 2018 wreck she was stopped and arrested for driving under the influence. It is unclear if officers were aware of her supposed connection with the wreck at the time of that arrest.

According to police, the 28-year-old woman rear ended another vehicle and then fled the scene of the accident. The other vehicle was forced off of the road and flipped, killing the driver. Police charged the woman with a felony for leaving the scene of the accident, driving under the influence and reckless murder.

These types of criminal charges can have a serious impact on a person's future. From possibly spending years behind bars to shelling out for steep fines and missing out on valuable job opportunities, defendants should not leave things up to chance. A thorough review of all charges and related evidence is usually a good place for defendants to start when creating their defense plan.
