Elderly woman charged with drunk driving

Many people in Nebraska may well have an image in their minds of the stereotype person who gets arrested for and charged with drunk driving. Quite typically, this image is not very positive and essentially assumes that only very irresponsible people would ever be facing this type of criminal charge. The stereotype may also make people think that only young drivers are arrested for driving under the influence. That could actually not be further from the truth.

A good example of this can be seen in a recent case in Lincoln involving a woman who is 78 years old. Reports indicate that she was driving along a street where construction was taking place in the middle of a weekday afternoon. At one point, the woman is said to have driven her vehicle over the median and then back again. At some point in this process, her vehicle came into contact with a construction worker who was walking on the median at the same time.

The driver is said to have kept going for a few blocks and was not conscious when people got to her vehicle. She now faces multiple criminal offenses including driving under the influence causing a serious injury. It is not known if she has ever been charged with drunk driving before. Also unknown is what her blood alcohol content was at the time of the incident.

After being arrested for a DUI offense, Nebraska residents might be able to learn about their defense options by talking with an attorney.
