Alcohol believed to be a factor in crash involving Greenwich man

We call them drunk driving "accidents," but the reality is that intoxicated drivers make the decision to get behind the wheel despite the risk of hurting themselves and others. A crash can then lead to criminal charges and a claim of personal injury or wrongful death, and victims of drunk driving should be aware of their legal options for holding wrongdoers accountable.

These issues may arise after a recent accident in Rye, New York, where police say a car driven by a Connecticut man slammed into the back of a parked vehicle, injuring four people.

The accident happened at about 4:30 a.m. when the allegedly drunk driver allowed his Acura to veer onto the right shoulder of Interstate 287, where another vehicle was parked at the time. The car hit the parked vehicle, which struck a guardrail and ended up in the middle of the interstate. The accused driver's vehicle rolled and came to a stop on its roof.

Two brothers, aged 25 and 23, were passengers in the Acura. The 25-year-old lost one of his ears and suffered a skull fracture after being ejected from the car. His brother, who was in the front seat, lost two fingers.

Three occupants in the parked vehicle were transported to Stamford Hospital to be checked out for neck and back injuries, and the driver of that car suffered injuries that were not thought to be serious.

Now the driver of the Acura is facing criminal charges, including vehicular assault and DWI. The injured parties also have the option of pursuing civil claims of personal injury in order to receive fair compensation and possibly punitive damages.
