Everyone makes mistakes. However, when a person's blunders encroach on public safety, one can have a run-in with the law. This is exactly what appears to have happened to a local man after he allegedly ran his vehicle into some parked cars. He is now facing DUI charges in relation to what reportedly transpired that day.
Cherry Avenue is a busy place that became even more hectic after the crash. Authorities were called to the scene when a vehicle allegedly ran into a number of parked cars on Cherry Avenue, near the intersection of Commodore Drive.
The man was treated and attended to at the scene by paramedics and was then taken to a local hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. At the scene, authorities claimed they suspected driver impairment, and he was later arrested at the hospital on suspicion of DUI.
When it comes to allegations of DUI and intoxicated driving, there are levels of severity in the charges. If accused and convicted of previous DUI's, punishments are usually more severe, if convicted again.
When accused of a DUI after an accident, like the one the Hayward man was in, charges can be more severe. Luckily, no-one was injured beyond the driver's minor injuries. If there had been an accident involving another party, one would most likely be looking at felony DUI.
Blood alcohol content is just one way a person can face a DUI. Impairment tests and interaction with officers are other ways in which a person can be charged with DUI. Intoxication driving convictions can have a big impact on the rest of a person's life.
