Train Accident Results in DUI Accident Arrest

One place you should definitely not park your car is on train tracks. Of course, if one driver had not been intoxicated when she parked her vehicle, she might have realized that and avoided causing a serious accident.

The DUI accident occurred last week when a 29-year-old driver drove off a country road and onto train tracks. Once stuck on the tracks, a passenger train slammed into her car, causing it to catch on fire. Although twenty people were on board the train at the time, nobody was hurt, including the train conductor and staff.

When an officer from the California Highway Patrol arrived on the scene, he quickly determined that the female driver was intoxicated. She was arrested for DUI and causing a DUI accident. Additional charges could follow pending an investigation.

If you have recently been arrested for causing a DUI accident, it is important that you contact the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry now so you can receive advice and representation from an Orange County DUI lawyer.
