Injured self in DUI crash. Felony or no?
I crashed my car into "no parking" sign and broke my leg. No other persons were involved in the incident. Is this a felony because i injured myself? Everything i have read online states that it is a felony if an "other" person was injured but doesn't say about the driver.
Depending on your previous history of DUI convictions this may or may not be a felony. Confirm with local counsel.
