Nevada man involved in two crashes faces DUI charge

A man has recently been arrested in Nevada resulting from two incidents near and on the I-580. Nevada police suspect that the man caused two separate wrecks, but luckily no one was seriously injured. Police arrested him on a DUI charge as well as other charges for his involvement in the incidents.

According to the report, the 26-year-old man was allegedly driving close to Nevada's I-580 in Reno shortly before 11 a.m. on a recent Monday morning. The man was purportedly driving on a road close to the Interstate when he allegedly clipped another vehicle. After doing so, police claim that the man merged onto I-580 going north, and he eventually got off of the highway.

On the exit, the man supposedly ran into an SUV, and the vehicle rolled over. The man and the driver of the SUV were both transported to an area hospital, but thankfully neither was seriously injured. The report does not mention whether a field sobriety test was given or if a blood test was administered.

Nevertheless, the man has been arrested and charged with DUI as well as reckless driving and other charges. If a field sobriety test or blood alcohol test was not performed on the man, Nevada prosecution may have difficulty proving the man's DUI charge. If sufficient evidence is not provided to support that the man was DUI, and if the prosecution cannot prove that charge beyond a reasonable doubt, the man's DUI charge may ultimately be dismissed by the court.
