Hit by a drunk driver
I was rear ended by a drunk driver with my 1 year old and 2 14 yr olds in the car. The driver did not attempt to put on his brakes. We were hit pretty hard. He also fled the scene. However, due to the damage to his vehicle, he only made it 1/2 mile down the road. The PA state police showed up and took the driver into custody. It is now 5 months later and no charges have been filed. This has had a major impact on our lives in several different ways. I cannot seek compensation unless he is found guilty. I am concerned that the driver will not get charged. It irks me that he fled the scene and had no regard to the people in my vehicle or any injuries they may have had. His concern was getting away and it appears that he has accomplished that. Where is the justice for me and my family? I make several calls to the state police who assure me charges will be filed but can't tell me when. Is there anyway or could an attorney push those charges to be filed? My family and I want to move on.
Sorry for what you and your family have had to endure. One point of clarification, he does not need to be found guilty...

Will I be charged with DUI?
I left a restaurant after having 3 light beers and an IPA. I hit a vehicle that was parked on the side of the road, not very bad but cops were called and needed to file accident report. I admitted to the cop the beverages that I had, he placed me under arrest and then took me to the local hospital for blood to be taken. About half an hour after, the arresting officer took me home, returned my weapons and we ended on a firm handshake. I received my accident report and it reads the prime factor of accident is "other improper driving actions" however, it does say that I had the number of beers I said I had in the officers description. The bac section is also unknown. What can I expect?
There is no definitive answer to your question. It sounds that certainly if the officer wanted to charge you with DUI,...
