Two Georgia Drivers Charged with DUI after Accident Involving Police Cruiser

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DUI accident fatalities increased from 9,865 in 2011 to 10,322 in 2013. The NHTSA reported that the majority of DUI accidents with fatalities involved drivers whose blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was 0.15 percent or higher, or almost twice the legal limit. A 2006 study by the NHTSA estimated that there is one drunk driving fatality in the United States every 30 minutes.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, an early morning accident resulted in the DUI arrests of two drivers. The accident occurred when a car attempted to pass a truck. The car sideswiped the truck, which collided with a police cruiser that was following it. The drivers of the car and the truck both failed field sobriety tests and were arrested for DUI.
