Darien – DUI Charges In Intersection Crash
A motorist was charged with DUI following a crash in Darien last weekend.
At approximately 3:45 p.m. last Saturday, local officials were alerted to an accident at the intersection of Brookside and Post Roads. According to responders, a blue Land Rover Discovery was traveling at the intersection when it collided with a Chevrolet Suburban whose occupant reportedly drove through a red light. The collision resulted in heavy damage and injuries. The driver of the Chevy has since been identified as 44-year-old Estuardo Reyes of Stamford. Responding officials observed Reyes’ erratic behavior and administered a field sobriety test which he failed. He was immediately arrested and taken into custody for driving under the influence. He is scheduled to appear in court on November 20.
The fact that driving under the influence is a serious offense cannot be overstated. And it’s also important to note that state and local authorities are always focused on taking these negligent individuals off the road and stop them from hurting other motorists. That said, anyone injured due to negligent actions, such as DUI, as advised to talk to legal experts to determine what their options could be based on their individual circumstances.
