Teen driver charged with DWI after accident

Most law enforcement officers will tell you that one of the worst things you can do after an accident is flee the scene, particularly if there is an injury. A New York teen was recently arrested for a felony DWI after an accident that left a 14-year-old girl unconscious.

The 18-year-old teen reportedly lost control of his car and crashed his vehicle into a tree near a highway exit, before leaving the scene of the crash. The passenger was left seriously injured and unconscious, and was later taken to the hospital for treatment.

Shortly thereafter, police tracked down the teen driver by searching a nearby area. The teen is now facing multiple criminal charges including DWI, aggravated DWI with a child passenger under 15 years old, leaving the scene of an accident involving a personal injury, third degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, and endangering the welfare of a child.

If you are facing significant charges like these, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help with your case. Once an attorney has reviewed your case, they can give you a realistic picture of what to expect. In some DWI cases, the police officers at the scene have improperly administered a blood alcohol test to the driver and prosecutors based their charges on these inaccurate results. Your attorney can challenge these results and have them thrown out of your case, which could result in a dismissal of charges. If dismissal is not a possibility, your attorney can negotiate with prosecutors to get you a plea deal to help you avoid more serious consequences.
