The pickup driver was administered a breath test at the scene and found to have a blood alcohol content of .14. Police have charged him with driving while impaired, having an open container of alcohol and failing to stay in his lane.

The pickup driver’s blatant disregard for the law and the safety of himself and others on the road with him is inexcusable. As an experienced North Carolina personal injury lawyer, I know that it is imperative for all people to remember that it does not take much alcohol to inhibit one's ability to drive. My colleagues and I see far too many clients who were injured due to the negligent actions of someone getting behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol.
