An allegedly intoxicated Texas driver ran a vehicle into a utility pole in Houston, knocking out the power to student housing for the University of Houston for some time. The accident took place at about 2 a.m. on March 6, and the power was restored to the apartments a few hours later. The driver of the vehicle now faces criminal charges stemming from the accident, according to reports.
On Dec. 9, a man in Texas was detained by police after he was involved in two collisions and a foot pursuit thereafter. The incident occurred at approximately 2:20 p.m. when a motorist struck another vehicle at the junction of U.S. 87 and F.M. 2105. The driver allegedly fled the scene but eventually collided with a fixture at 44th and Armstrong. The extent of the property damage sustained is still unknown.
All it takes is one drink too many and a driver who means no harm can find that he or she is facing drunk driving charges. Despite his crime likely being the one that most Houston area residents would be apt to find themselves facing, there are many things about this offense that most people don't know. For instance, one does not need to be driving a car, truck or van to face drunk driving charges. A South Texas man is all too aware of this.
