When a person is involved in a car accident, he or she often panics in the aftermath, potentially causing him or her to react in a way that is otherwise out of character. While this panic may be understandable, it could potentially lead to serious legal implications. In fact, a man in Missouri now faces criminal charges, including DWI, after police say he fled the scene of an accident.
The incident that led to the man’s arrest reportedly happened on a day in November. According to reports, the man struck two pedestrians while driving on a Missouri roadway. Police say that he did not remain at the scene, but police were able to take him into custody after someone followed him.
