News sources in Georgia report that a 20-year-old man has been charged with driving under the influence following a fatal pedestrian accident June 30. The deadly incident occurred in Catoosa County on Sam Lewis Road. Sources indicate that preliminary reports have not yet been completed as of press time and that additional charges in this case could be pending.

According to the Georgia State Police, the charged man was driving a 2007 Toyota Tacoma when the collision took place in the lane heading north. The 28-year-old female pedestrian was reportedly walking southbound when she was struck by the front end of the Toyota. Sources indicate that the pedestrian was killed as a result of the accident, but few additional details concerning the crash are immediately available.

Reports do not indicate whether the charged man has a prior history of DUI. Whether this is an alleged first-time offense or a subsequent drunk driving charge, however, serious consequences may be associated with any charges that arise in connection with this incident. In Georgia, jail time, monetary fines and driver's license suspension are among the repercussions that could be faced in varying degrees by all DUI offenders upon conviction.

If a person is accused of driving drunk, then he or she might decide to seek counsel from a drunk driving attorney who is well cognizant of the workings of the criminal justice system. The attorney might be able to help the client mitigate the potentially life-changing impact of the DUI charges dependent upon the full set of circumstances that surround this particular incident.
