I beg to differ. This person was only charged with drunken driving, Maybe she will be found innocent of the charge. I think the headline was correct.

Yup, legally the headline is correct, and yes, she could be found innocent since anything is possible. However, I think we both know, most one car accidents involving a car and a utility pole where the person is charged at the scene with DUI, are, unfortunately found to be the result of driving drunk.

Surely, if this had been a case of a medical condition (heart attack, seizure, etc.) causing the accident, that would have been reported.

Just sick of seeing so many instances of drinking and driving - no excuse for it whatsoever.

Shouldn't that headline read "Drunken Driving leads to Northbridge Accident"?
