Missouri woman falls asleep at the wheel, suspected of DWI

Most every driver has experienced fatigue and drowsiness while behind the wheel. Often, even people who are relatively well-rested can feel their eyelids start to droop while driving. Despite the relatively common nature of drowsy drivers, one Missouri woman now faces accusations of DWI after she allegedly fell asleep while driving.

The incident that led to the woman's arrest reportedly happened during the morning hours of a day in late September. According to reports, the 29-year-old woman was headed east on Highway 24 when police say she fell asleep. The Missouri State Highway Patrol states that afterward her vehicle exited the left side of the roadway.

The vehicle is said to have then struck a fence, resulting in moderate damage. The woman, who police say was not wearing a seat belt, suffered minor injuries and was treated at the hospital. Police arrested her, suspecting that she was driving while intoxicated.

Despite the allegations against the Missouri woman, it is unclear what led police to suspect that the woman was under the influence of drugs. Often accusations of DWI can leave people unsure about their options as they face a complicated criminal justice system. Because of this, most people facing criminal charges want an attorney with experience with similar cases on their side, providing them with the information they need to make informed decisions. Having such a person on their side often gives them confidence in their ability to make the choices that will likely have an impact on the rest of their lives.
