Two DUIs in Same Night Lucky to not be Injury Accidents in Washoe County

Two men were taken to jail recently on the same night for attempting to flee police after having officers attempt to pull them over. Both cases are suspected to be related to driving under the influence, and were incredibly fortunate not to have resulted in an injury accident in Washoe County. Both men spent the night in the Washoe County Detention Facility, where they were booked after arrest.

The first of the incidents took place just before midnight that evening when a station wagon made by Mercedes Benz was seen by a Nevada Highway Patrol sergeant to be going 80 miles an hour. This was in a 45 mile per hour limit area a little to the north of Queen Way in Sparks on Pyramid Highway. The 35 year old driver of the vehicle didn’t respond when the highway patrolman turned on his emergency lights in an attempt to pull the Mercedes Benz over. When he finally stopped the vehicle, after several other traffic violations such as failing to keep in a lane, the driver exhibited many signs of driving under the influence. Driving under the influence is the cause of many injury car accidents in Sparks, Nevada. If you’re in auto accident in the Reno area, you need to call Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law. We can help.

Just over three hours after this DUI arrest in Sparks, a Ford Explorer was observed to have an expired registration tag, prompting an officer to attempt to pull him over. The driver of the vehicle did not pull over, instead he continued on Interstate 80, then exited onto IR-580 going south. He pulled off onto side streets, several times making as if to pull over, before speeding off again. He was finally stopped when a police converged on him from multiple directions. He was booked for DUI in Reno, as well several other serious charges. It was thought to be incredibly lucky that neither of these two attempts to elude police ended in any kind of injury accident in the Reno area.
