When a person is suspected of driving under the influence, there are certain standards that may need to be met before a person could be charged. For instance, states have certain blood-alcohol levels that are considered legal limits, and if a driver is over that limit, he or she could face DUI charges. If an individual is also under the legal drinking age, those limits could be lowered.

A 20-year-old man in New Jersey is currently facing charges for allegedly driving under the influence after being involved in an accident. It was reported that the man struck a UPS worker who was on foot. It was alleged the driver was traveling at approximately 40 mph in a 25 mph zone when the accident took place at 3:30 a.m.

The incident reportedly led to the pedestrian suffering fatal injuries. As a result, the driver of the vehicle was charged with death by auto and DUI. Though authorities suspect that the driver was under the influence, results were not available regarding alcohol testing. It was noted that an underage individual could be charged for DUI if a blood-alcohol level is .01 percent or higher.

As the man's situation proceeds, he will likely hope to find beneficial ways to handle the death by auto and DUI charges that have been leveled against him. His options could vary depending on the specific circumstances of the alleged incident. Information on creating a defense could potentially be of interest, and gaining knowledge of criminal proceedings in New Jersey relating to his situation could also prove beneficial.
