A 24-year-old man from Visalia, California, sustained major injuries requiring hospitalization in a collision between his pickup and another vehicle at a highway intersection in the community of Tulare on Sunday evening that resulted in the deaths of two occupants of the other car. Once doctors medically clear him, authorities intend to arrest him on charges related to DUI. However, no one involved in law enforcement has given any reason as to why authorities believe that the pickup driver may have been under the influence, so the rationale behind the impending DUI arrest remains unclear at this time.
Californian drivers may not know it, but the state is one of the harshest when it comes to dealing with incidents involving driving while under the influence (DUI). The penalties are steep and can impact drivers of all sorts, regardless of whether or not it's your first offense.
