DUI Suspect Crashes Into Gas Line
A female DUI suspect crashed into the gas line at her home when she pulled into her driveway, allegedly drunk.
Police in Las Vegas arrested her, but had to clear the entire neighborhood due to the major gas leak.
“The suspect backed out of the driveway, then accelerated forward, colliding into her carport, storage shed and gas meter, breaking the meter,” Las Vegas Police Department Officials said. “The suspect remained in the vehicle following the collision and had to be extracted by a responding patrol officer.”
In California, a DUI with an Accident is an enhancement that requires restitution to be paid to any alleged victims and allows prosecutors to seek additional punishment. As a DUI enhancement, the prosecutor can seek a variety of punishments, usually jail time to be served through alternative sentencing.
