Sharing the road with intoxicated drivers can be dangerous and result in accident-related injuries. A person who has experienced property damage or physical harm from the poor choices of another driver may feel frustrated and desire justice. Recently, a pickup truck purportedly operated by an intoxicated man left a path of accident-related injuries as he collided with a number of other vehicles and plowed into a Montana home.
The late-night accident began at a nearby railroad crossing when the truck, driven by a man suspected to be under the influence, supposedly destroyed a light structure and crossing arm. Reports claim that he continued onward and, shortly after, collided with an SUV. The driver of the SUV was taken to a local medical facility for treatment of accident-related injuries as the pickup truck continued to drive on. As the man traveled down the road, he took out a yield sign and jumped a road division, crossing over into the oncoming side of traffic.
Authorities believe the man encountered a minor fender bender with a luxury sedan, failing to stop and continuing to drive. As he moved through traffic facing the wrong way, he grazed another vehicle and crashed into a van. The driver of the van was also taken to a nearby medical facility for her accident-related injuries. As the man continued to moved on, he passed through traffic, through a fence and into a Montana home. Police detained the man after he became lodged in snow as he tried to drive his truck away from the final scene.
The purportedly drunk and erratic driver was arrested and received medical care for his accident-related injuries as well. The man was charged three times for failing to stop after the accident, driving under impairment and dangerously operating a motor vehicle. Anyone who suffered injures to their body or property in these incidents may choose file a claim for restitution.
