The penalties that come with operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol, or otherwise being impaired, are harsh. Hefty fines, community service, license revocation and imprisonment all loom above those that choose to get behind the wheel while they are anything but sober. Yet we still see accidents as a result of drunk driving, like the one this week in Delray Beach.
The driver involved in this hit-and-run crash on Monday was arrested and charged with DUI
and fleeing the scene of a crime. According to FHP the accident happened around 1:15 am, when the driver’s truck collided with a car on I-95 South near Lincoln Boulevard.
FHP has yet to release the driver’s name and thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
