Virginia man charged with drug possession after fatal accident

Being involved in a car accident is a traumatic experience, especially if fatalities or serious injuries result. If one is charged with a crime after such an accident, things are even worse. In addition to the physical and emotional pain they may be feeling, an individual now has to worry about their future and what consequences lie ahead. Drug charges in particular can have severe consequences.

A Virginia man was recently involved in a head-on collision that claimed the lives of two women. The accident occurred when the man's vehicle crossed the centerline and struck a car with a mother and daughter inside. The daughter was driving her mother to a doctor's appointment in Norfolk when the accident occurred. Both the mother and the daughter were declared dead at the scene of the crash.

The man suffered serious injuries and was taken to the hospital. He was later determined to be the at-fault driver and was charged with DWI, possession or distribution of drug paraphernalia, possession of heroin, two counts of involuntary manslaughter, and various other charges. He was being held at the local jail without bond at the time this post was prepared.

Anyone facing drug or DUI charges following a motor vehicle accident needs an aggressive defense. Different defenses are available for different charges. For example, a DUI charge can be refuted by showing that the blood alcohol test was administered improperly or that the results were inaccurate. The better the defense, the more likely the charges will be reduced or dropped altogether.
