In an ironic twist, a woman charged with her third DUI crashed through the front of the office of a drunk driving defense lawyer early Friday morning. Murfreesboro police said the woman was drunk when she drove her Volkswagen over the sidewalk and into the lawyer’s office on Church Street, around 2 A.M. It was reported that the driver fled the scene in her wrecked car before it eventually broke down on Medical Center Parkway, where the driver and female passenger abandoned the car. Eye witnesses were able to identify the driver and when she failed sobriety tests, she was taken into custody.
The lawyer, who practices DUI defense estimated the damage to her historic law office to be about $30,000, but said it could have been worse. Thankfully, the crash did not occur during the middle of the day when she had an office full of staff and clients when one or more people could have been injured or even killed, inside or outside the building. More often than not, that is the case and that’s when an attorney who specializes in personal injury and car accidents is much needed.
