Man charged with multiple offenses in DUI death

Most residents in Missouri have heard much about the dangers of drunk driving yet despite widespread awareness, many people refuse to stop drinking and driving. As a result, too many people continue to be killed by drunk drivers. It is understandable that people want to find ways to seek justice after these senseless accidents.

The friends and family of one 38-year-old man likely had a mournful Christmas last year after the man was struck and killed by another driver who was intoxicated and hit him head-on along a stretch of Highway 185 in St. Francois County. The drunk driver was operating a pickup truck that authorities later found did not have current plate tags. The drunk driver also did not have current auto insurance.

Reports indicate that the at-fault driver failed a field sobriety test and had trouble providing a breath sample but when he did the result showed a blood alcohol content of 0.147 percent which is well over the legal limit. A blood sample eventually showed his BAC to be over 0.20 percent. Three charges have since been filed against the man including a class C felony for driving while intoxicated causing death. It is not known if civil charges have been filed as well.

After the loss of a loved one at the hands of a drunk driver, people in Missouri might want to ask an attorney about how they may seek compensation and some type of justice.
