A Kentucky woman has been arrested for her alleged involvement in a car accident that left another woman dead. Authorities do believe impairment played a role in the collision. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help this individual fight the charges filed against her.
According to a recent news report, on Friday, Nov. 10, a woman was operating her vehicle near Shepherdsville when her car collided with another. A passenger in the impacted vehicle — a 35-year-old woman — died at the scene. Her 11-year-old son was transported to an area hospital simply as a precaution. He has since been released to family members.
The accused is facing several criminal charges for this incident. Some of them include driving while impaired, leaving the accident scene, murder and assault. She was transported to Bullitt County Jail where, according to the latest update, she is still being held by authorities.
Police are still in the process of investigating this crash. At this point, it is unclear if any more charges are pending in this case. Even if further charges are not added, those already on the list are quite severe and have stiff consequences if prosecuting attorneys are able to achieve a conviction. According to the laws of Kentucky, the accused has the right to employ an experienced criminal defense attorney to help her fight her case in court. While it will not be an easy one, with legal counsel at her side, she can make informed decisions regarding the best way to handle her case.
