Being involved in a car accident can be a frightening experience, even if there is only one vehicle involved. The situation can become even more worrisome if the driver of the vehicle is suspected to have been under the influence at the time of the accident. Such suspicion could lead to a driver facing charges of OVI, and he or she will likely wish to work on a criminal defense.
One man in Ohio may be taking such action after being taken into custody. It was reported that the man was driving a pickup truck when he reportedly saw a deer on the right side of the road. In order to avoid the deer, he purportedly swerved to the left side of the road but was unable to remain on the roadway. As a result, his truck overturned.
The man was able to free himself from the vehicle, but he was apparently injured. He was transported to an area hospital before being transferred to another facility. Authorities suspected that alcohol played a role in the incident, and, as a result, the man is facing charges for OVI and failure to control a vehicle.
Due to the situation, the man may consider his circumstances unlucky. However, he does have legal options that could potentially help his situation. Information on defense strategies that may prove beneficial to his case could allow him to feel more confident in his decision making. Additionally, he may find gaining knowledge on the Ohio criminal justice system and proceedings relating to his OVI case valuable.
