The Associated Press reports on a story involving an Arizona woman whose
blood alcohol content, based on a breath test, was allegedly more than
three times the legal 0.08 limit (though you can be
arrested for DUI in Arizona even if you're under the 0.08 limit).
But it wasn't just the blood alcohol content that brought all these
charges against her -
felony DUI, felony endangerment, aggravated assault - as she is said to have crashed
her pickup truck into four construction vehicles.
There were 35 road workers on site at the time of the collision, according
to the AP, but it does not appear that any of those workers sustained
severe injury, other than the whiplash sustained by two of the drivers
of those construction vehicles.
In Arizona, if you drive while impaired and cause an accident, you can
be charged with the criminal offense of vehicular assault. Also, being
way over the legal limit can result in what are called "
extreme DUI" charges, which come with mandatory sentences and penalties if convicted.
