Man Collided with OCSO Patrol Car, Charged with DUI

By Orlando Auto Accident Lawyer on May 14, 2018

An incident that happened on the morning of Sunday, May 13th, has resulted in the arrest of a single individual and the filing of charges against him by the police working within Orange County.  The report issued by the Orange County Sheriff’s Office provides us with the currently available details of the incident.

According to the report, the individual in question, a 45-year-old, was behind the wheel of a 1999 Toyota Camry when the accident took place.  The man in the Camry was driving down either Orange Blossom Trail or the Central Florida Parkway when something occurred to cause him to collide with at 2008 Jeep Cherokee.  Inside of the Cherokee were four police officers working for the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.  The report did not indicate if the Cherokee, an unmarked patrol vehicle, was parked, if it was moving, or if it was in any way behaving in a manner to cause the collision between the two vehicles.

When other officers with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office arrived, they reported that they discovered a half-consumed bottle of Corona on the floor of the car.  They also stated that the driver of the Camry smelled strongly of alcohol.  He admitted to having consumed two Heineken beers earlier in the day, but he insisted that the Corona was from a previous evening.

Troopers claimed that they conducted several field sobriety tests in the hours following the crash.  In these tests, according to the troopers, the Camry’s driver did not do well.  The report also stated that the driver blew a 0.154 and a 0.153 when given a Intoxilyzer test.

Paramedics were on hand following the crash, and it is believed that at least one of the officers within the unmarked patrol vehicle was taken to a the Hunter’s Creek Emergency Room to receive treatment for minor injuries.  The driver of the Camry complained of neck pain to the responding officers, and the report stated that they ultimately allowed the man to also be transported to the Hunter Creek Emergency Room.

As of this writing, the incident is still under investigation, and charges against the driver of the Camry are pending.

    I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.
