A collision with a UPS truck has led to the death of a passenger and injuries to another passenger. The accident on the Tennessee roadway has also resulted in criminal charges for the man who was behind the wheel of the car that was hit by the UPS truck. The 45-year-old man is facing multiple charges, including DUI and vehicular homicide.
The site of an accident involving property damage or injuries will typically lead to police involvement. When police responding to such a scene believe the accident may have been caused by, or involved, impairment of a driver somehow, DUI charges may follow the incident. A woman in Tennessee recently drove her car into a bar in Nashville and was arrested for DUI afterwards.
Online activity may seem harmless or be seen as a victimless crime; however, the click of a mouse can lead to criminal charges if certain activities are suspected. Because the world of Internet crime is relatively new to law enforcement and the criminal justice system, it can be a difficult area to navigate. In fact, some people charged with an Internet crime in Tennessee may, actually, be unaware that certain activities are against the law, much less be aware of the possible criminal consequences of such activities.
