Car accidents could result in OVI charges

Motor vehicle accidents happen. Even so, most of them are ruled preventable because the at-fault driver was distracted, fatigued, impaired or otherwise failing to obey the rules of the road. When a driver is suspected of drunk driving at the time of a crash by an Ohio police officer, OVI charges could follow.

An Ohio grandmother could face such a charge, in addition to others, after an accident involving a police officer on a motorcycle. Reports indicate that it was around 9:30 p.m. when the motorcycle officer attempted to pull over a vehicle. The grandmother had stopped at an intersection at the same time that the officer approached it.

When she pulled out into the intersection, she allegedly did so in front of the officer who was thrown from his motorcycle. He suffered serious injuries, but the grandmother and her young passenger did not suffer any injuries. However, as the investigation into the crash began, responding officers say they suspected the 65-year-old woman of being drunk. A breath test supposedly indicated her blood alcohol concentration was over Ohio's legal limit of .08. Thereafter, she was transported to the local jail.

It is always a good idea to challenge these and other charges because police, lab technicians and others are not infallible. Just because the breath test indicated her BAC was .125 does not mean that the woman will face conviction forĀ OVI and the other charges she faces. In preparing a criminal defense, every aspect of the situation is reviewed, including all of a person's contact with police and any testing done by them. Depending on the outcome of that review, weaknesses in the prosecution's case could arise.
