A drunk driving accident can occur anytime a person is impaired and gets behind the wheel of a car. All drivers assume a reasonable duty of care for other people sharing the road. Making poor decisions and deciding to drive after the consumption of alcohol can result in severe consequences. A recent news story highlights the dangers of deciding to drive under impairment. An alleged North Carolina drunk driver caused two separate accidents on March 8, one which resulted in injuries.

North Carolina doctor facing DUI charge

In North Carolina, a person can be arrested for drunk driving even if his or her blood alcohol level is just above the legal limit.

That may be worth keeping in mind with regards to a story that appeared in the news recently about a doctor who is facing a DUI charge.

This is especially true when the distractions of everyday life take over -- as they often do during an early morning commute. A recent car accident in Wilmington, North Carolina, resulted in serious injury, and is a stark reminder that operating a motor vehicle should never be taken lightly.

Most the time, when people think about a car accident that results in the injury of others, they automatically assume two vehicles were involved.
