1 killed, 3 injured in Foley drunk driving accident

When people in Jasper, and throughout Alabama, make the decision to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, they are putting themselves, and others, in danger. The effects of alcohol, as well as illegal drugs, can impact their ability to safely control and operate their vehicles. As a result, car accidents may occur, which can cause injuries to them, other drivers, passengers and bystanders.

One woman was killed, and at least three people were reportedly injured in an auto accident that occurred in Foley recently. There were no details reported on the types of injuries the other victims suffered, nor was it disclosed whether they were taken to the hospital for treatment. According to reports, a 23-year-old man who was driving an SUV crashed into a sedan. An extrication tool had to be used in order to free at least one person from the collision.

The man believed to have cause the accident was allegedly under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. It was reported that he was placed under arrest and charged with DUI and manslaughter for his role in the auto accident. Other charges are reportedly pending.

Getting into a motor vehicle accident can result in damages beyond just those to the motor vehicles involved. Car accident injury victims often require medical treatment, which can result in undue expenses. People who have experienced this type of situation may find it of benefit to consult with a legal professional to discuss their situation. An attorney may help them to understand their rights, as well as what type of compensation they may be entitled to.
