Man dead, woman charged with DUI in Georgia

A woman is facing DUI and vehicular homicide charges after a fatal accident involving a bicyclist. The accident took place in Sandy Springs, Georgia, on the morning of July 17. The 24-year-old victim was identified by police and taken into custody. It is unclear whether she remains there at this time or whether she has retained defense counsel. 

According to the police report, just before 5 a.m., a 34-year-old woman was driving south on Roswell Road when she allegedly struck the 24-year-old cyclist. She then continued some 100 yards up the road before crashing. Police arrived shortly thereafter and arrested her on suspicion of DUI. She was also charged with driving without a license. 

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene by local coroners, and presumably, his family has been notified of his tragic death. Police shut down the road in both directions until just before 9 a.m. to facilitate their investigation into the fatal crash. The lanes reopened shortly thereafter, but police are still collecting evidence to present to prosecutors for the inevitable court case. 

A tragedy like this, especially one predicated on suspected DUI, cannot be overstated. However, it is important to remember that, like all Georgia residents, the accused woman is entitled to her day in court to face the charges against her. When she does so, she will be represented by a criminal defense attorney who will carefully scrutinize any and all evidence the prosecution wishes to bring before the court, including any evidence of her alleged DUI state when the accident occurred.
