What can you do after a DUI accident?

Most drivers in Texas dread the thought of being involved in an accident. Aside from the potential damage to your vehicle and cost of repairs, there is also the chance that you or your loved ones may be seriously injured. Sadly, road accidents are all too common and the results are often devastating for all involved. Weather conditions, vehicle malfunctions and problems with the road surface can all contribute to such incidents. However, many crashes are caused by driver negligence or irresponsibility.

Texas man suspected of driving drunk

Not everyone on the roads of Texas drives responsibly. In fact, some even choose to drive while severely over the legal limit of 0.08 percent blood alcohol concentration. Although many assume that they are still safe to drive, their reactions are simply not up to par, and if anything goes wrong, it can lead to a devastating accident. As such, officers are always on the lookout for suspected drunk drivers in order to protect road users as much as possible.

One such case was suspected in Texas recently.
