The DUI case against you will be based on the evidence at the accident site as well as any administered blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests. Law enforcement investigates all such accidents and comes to a conclusion based on the evidence. The prosecutor will be highly motivated to get a conviction in the case and has the support of law enforcement, labs, and the entire state network for backup. It may be necessary to conduct a separate investigation of the circumstances of the accident or interview the available witnesses.
