When a driver who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs causes an accident, not only will that person face DUI charges, but he or she can also face more serious charges if another person is seriously injured or killed in the accident. This person could be the driver of another vehicle, a pedestrian on the side of the road or even a passenger in the intoxicated driver's own vehicle.
