Woman Catches Multiple Felony Charges After DUI-Related Crash

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.
