According to 9 WFTV Orlando, Thursday morning, around 2:45 a.m. a drunk driver crashed into a pickup truck heading southbound on I-75. The collision caused the pickup to flip and hit a guard rail.

He was charged with DUI manslaughter, DUI serious injury, and DUI property damage.
Who Can Be Held Responsible in a Drunk Driving Accident?
There are several potential defendants in a drunk driving case. Obviously, the drunk driver will be responsible. In some cases, a business (i.e. bar, restaurant, gas station, etc.) may be liable for overserving the drunk driver or furnishing alcohol to a noticeably intoxicated person. It is imperative to explore all potential legal options.
