Facing allegations of driving under the influence of alcohol can be a stressful and intimidating process. The penalties for a drunk driving conviction are serious, and may only increase in severity if an accident occurs, especially one resulting in death. A postal service worker has been charged with DWI after a recent accident that claimed the life of a moped driver in North Carolina.

Local authorities claim the accident took place around 5:30 p.m. on a recent Wednesday, when the postal worker suddenly veered into the opposite lane. According to reports, her vehicle struck an oncoming moped, and the driver was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. She was taken to the hospital shortly after the accident for treatment, and has since been accused of driving while intoxicated.

1 facing drug charges after allegedly attempting to flee by water
