When someone gets behind the wheel when they are intoxicated, there is a lot at stake. Often times, consequences can include drunk driving charges. Some cases may be more serious than others, such as if the driver causes injury or has other passengers in the car. If those passengers are children, the case becomes even more complex, as one Fort Myers woman is learning.
Witnesses described hearing what sounded like an explosion when a blue Jeep Wrangler lost control while going south on U.S 41. The resulting crash sent one adult and an infant from another vehicle to the hospital with injuries. The Jeep driver is facing charges including DUI with persons under the age of 18, refusing to submit to a DUI test and two counts each of DUI with property damage and DUI with injury to another person.
