Car accidents are unpredictable and can happen in the blink of an eye. Accidents can happen for a multitude of reasons and have a wide range of future impacts. However, when a person receives a DUI charge regarding an accident, the ramifications can be severe and do permanent damage to a person's career and reputation. An Illinois man is facing DUI charges after police say he crashed his vehicle and left the scene.

Those that receive a charge such as driving under the influence of alcohol can be faced with moments of great stress and anxiety. A DUI charge can do irreversible damage to a person's reputation and psyche.
