Man facing drunk driving charges after Virginia crash

When people are involved in a car accident, adrenaline often kicks in and potentially causes them to react in a way that may be out of character. In fact, a man in Virginia is now facing drunk driving charges, among others, after he allegedly crashed into a restaurant. Police say that he fled the scene following the crash.

Reports indicate that the accident happened around 1:30 a.m. on a day in late October. Police say they responded to reports that a vehicle struck a Moe’s Southwest Grill. The driver, police claim, left the scene.

According to reports, the driver that police believed to have caused the accident was located nearby. It is unclear what led officers to the 21-year-old man they took into custody or what evidence supports the claim that he was the one involved in the accident. No injuries were reported in the accident; no one was inside the restaurant at the time of the collision.

In addition to facing drunk driving charges, the Virginia man is also charged with leaving the scene of an accident. As a result of the incident, the young man must now make decisions that could ultimately impact the rest of his life — decisions that he may feel that he does not have the necessary information to make. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can help guide the man through the criminal justice system, ensuring that he is able to make informed decisions. With such a person on their side, those who face such charges often feel more confident as they address the accusations against them.
