RENO, Nevada – Police believe alcohol may have played a role in a car accident that took place early this morning in Reno.
At around 4 a.m., a driver operating a 1995 Ford utility vehicle was traveling south on IR580 when he apparently lost control of the vehicle and drove into the temporary attenuator to the Moana off ramp. The vehicle then overturned and the driver had to be extricated.
According to Nevada Highway Patrol, several lanes had to be closed due to the incident and alcohol was believed to have played a part. The driver, 29-year-old Marcelino Fregososedano, was transported to Renown for the treatment of minor injuries and was then arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Driving under the influence is a serious crime and the penalties are just as severe. Drivers convicted of intoxicated driving may have their driver’s license suspended, may have to pay exorbitant fines and worst of all, may be sent to jail. However, there is a way to contest DUI charges, especially if you believe you have been falsely accused of driving drunk. Turn to a leading DUI lawyer immediately to fight your charges in court.
DUI attorneys work diligently to make sure your case resolves with the best possible outcome. They will investigate the incident, speaking to any police and witnesses that were at the scene. If for some reason your attorney uncovers information regarding a false arrest, such as the officer using a faulty breath test or arresting you on suspicion of DUI alone, rest assured that they will do whatever it takes to have your charges dropped or at least lowered significantly.
