West Virginia snow plow driver charged with drunk driving

Few things are more dangerous than driving in hazardous conditions. Savvy drivers understand that in order to make it to their destination without getting in an accident, they must drive in a safe manner. By driving safely and sober, West Virginia drivers reduce their risk of being involved in a drunk driving accident.

A West Virginia Department of Transportation worker was recently pulled over because the headlight was out on the driver's side of the state-owned snow plow. The officer smelled alcohol and noticed the bloodshot and glassy-eyed appearance of the driver. The sheriff's department said the driver's blood alcohol content was more than two times over the legal limit allowed for those with a commercial driver's license.

The transportation worker was confirmed by the DOT spokeswoman to be one of their employees. The spokeswoman could not speak any further about the incident due to the fact that the case is still ongoing. According to reports, the worker is facing charges of drunk driving. It is possible that the charges could be further complicated due to the worker's arrest occurring while operating a state-owned vehicle.

Luckily this particular West Virginia driver was removed from the already potentially dangerous roadways before there was an accident. Not all cases of drunk driving are as fortunate. In situations where a loved one may be suffering from a serious injury as the result of a drunk driving accident, the victim's family may qualify for a personal injury claim to assist with mounting medical expenses.
