After car accident man sentenced to five years in prison

When people drive their cars, they have a duty to do so carefully. When people are negligent, they can face both civil and criminal liability. If people are so negligent while driving that they hurt someone else, they can be charged with a variety of felonies. Recently a man was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide following a car accident.

Driver cited for DUII in crash that killed Oregon highway worker

It probably goes without saying that driving while intoxicated presents a serious danger to other people on the road. And when drivers take risks that directly affect other people, they affect their own future, as well. Aside from all of the personal ramifications of hurting or killing someone else, people who cause death or great bodily injury while driving drunk face much higher criminal penalties than those who are simply pulled over for driving erratically. They also may be ruled ineligible for diversion programs that allow them to keep a drunk-driving conviction off their criminal records.

A conviction for driving under the influence of intoxicants has the potential to ruin anyone's life, but when the guilty driver is a college student, the ramifications can be much more serious. Even if the student isn't sentenced to significant jail time, a drunk driving charge on a young person's criminal record often acts as a red flag for prospective employers, loan officers and even landlords. In today's economy, securing a good job and desirable housing is hard enough without this extra obstacle.

Nothing induces panic quite like a car accident, especially if you're the driver at fault. Such incidents can cause us to act irrationally and make poor decisions that we later regret. Unfortunately, many times we don't get a second chance to do the right thing. In the meantime it can be easy to build on those original mistakes.

Often when we think of drunk-driving accidents that injure or kill someone, we think first of the victim, followed by the wrong committed by the driver. Most cases are multi-faceted, though, affecting many more people than just the driver and victim.
