Dauo then hit five vehicles that were occupied before hitting a truck head on near West 207th Street.

Seven people suffered injuries due to the collisions, with three of those victims going to nearby hospitals for treatment. When police arrived at the scene of the accident, they found Dauo with blood shot eyes, slurred speech, and soiled pants. He was charged with several crimes, including driving while intoxicated and reckless endangerment. He was suspended without pay from his job with the Department of Corrections following his arrest.

Drunk Driving Dangers

Drunk driving accidents are often dangerous and damaging, leaving victims with injuries damages that are hard to recover from. The injuries that victims can sustain in these accidents can be very extensive, and will require serious medical attention to help these injuries heal. This medical intervention will, of course, cost money, which not all victims have on hand to be able to pay, which can be stressful following an accident.
