Car crash leads to felony drunk driving charges

Police in New York recently arrested the driver responsible for a single-vehicle crash in Yorktown on Friday, April 24. This individual is facing felony drunk driving charges, which, according to state laws, carry significant penalties if he is convicted. Thankfully, the accused has the right to defend himself with the assistance of legal counsel.

According to reports, the accused -- a 54-year-old male -- was operating his vehicle on East Main Street around noon when he crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic and then proceeded into a ditch on the side of the road. He was uninjured in the crash. No one else was injured as a result of this incident, either.

Police were called to the scene, and they promptly arrested this individual for driving while intoxicated. He was transported to Yorktown Police Headquarters, where his stay was brief. After processing, he was released to a third party without bail. The accused is due to address this matter in court in mid-June.

The accused has a previous DWI conviction, which is why felony drunk driving charges were filed after this incident. Having a prior conviction on his record may make the accused feel that fighting this charge is useless and not worth his time, but it is not. Defending oneself is always worth one's time. Legal counsel will have the ability to review the facts of this individual's case and help him devise a defensive strategy that may prove beneficial to him when his case is heard in a New York criminal court.
