Tennessee car accident leads to vehicular assault charge

Whenever there is a car accident of any kind and police believe alcohol may have played a role in the incident, there may be charges filed in addition to a drunk driving charge. A recent accident in Tennessee led to drunk driving charges against a female driver. It has also led to additional charges, including vehicular assault, due to the fact that a firefighter was injured at the scene of the accident.

The question of fault in a car accident is one that may be open to interpretation. If an accident results in a death and that death leads to accusations of vehicular assault or homicide, the future of the person charged in the case could be in jeopardy. It is wrong to presume guilt, though it is common to do exactly that.
