When an accident occurs, law enforcement typically looks for aggravating factors including excessive speed, intoxication by liquor or drugs, and even distracted or reckless driving. A simple traffic accident can quickly turn into a crime if an aggravating factor is present. The influence of alcohol can turn a misdemeanor DUI into a felony aggravated assault with mandatory prison and other severe consequences.
