DUI crash results in airlift of victim to St. Louis Hospital

Drunk driving crashes come in many tastes and colors, but Illinois accidents that result in serious injury or death are by far the most serious. A driver who is found guilty of one or more crimes involving death or serious injury may face incarceration, a hefty fine and lengthy, if not permanent, loss of driving privileges.

Driver charged with DUI in accident that injures motorcyclist

Vehicle accidents that cause death or serious injury often involve what baseball players might call "bad bounces."

Defendant in fatal wrong-way crash wants evidence suppressed

A man from New Athens, Illinois, who is awaiting trial on charges of aggravated DUI resulting in death and reckless homicide is attempting to persuade the court to suppress important evidence in the case.

Man arrested for DUI after truckers stop his vehicle

Not all arrests for driving under the influence in Illinois happen after a law enforcement traffic stop or after an accident and an investigation. In some instances, civilians will believe a driver is under the influence and take steps to stop the driver from continuing in what is believed to be a DUI. When this happens, the driver will likely be arrested when law enforcement arrives. In cases like this, it is imperative that drivers remember their rights to a DUI defense.

What is "implied consent" in Illinois?

Former attorney faces DUI charges after ramming police car

An otherwise unremarkable DUI arrest in Bond County appears to have acquired special significance because the suspect is a former attorney from Edwardsville. The suspect is facing 10 criminal charges, including a DUI, as the result of her alleged refusal to heed an officer's demand that she stop her vehicle and her intentional ramming of a police vehicle.

Drugs blamed for fatality in wrong-way accident

Many psychotropic medications have helped people in southern Illinois and elsewhere cope with disorders, such as depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, people who take the drugs often develop a dependence that may become an addiction. Because many of these drugs interfere with the brain's ability to control muscle function, an addiction to one of these drugs can lead to disastrous consequences. One such consequence occurred on I-255 near Godfrey when a driver's use of benzodiazepines lead to a head-on crash and one fatality.

Driver using revoked license charged with third DUI

The urge to drive a car sometimes seems like it is programmed into human DNA. Even seven convictions for driving with a revoked license were not a sufficient deterrent for a Washington Park man who was recently arrested for allegedly driving with a revoked license and suspicion of drunk driving.
