Can DUI charges still be filed if you weren't in the vehicle and the keys were no where in the area at the time of the accident?
This was a single vehicle crash and the person was out of the vehicle and the keys were no where to be found. A blood test was given at the hospital and showed that the BAC was above legal limit. How could they prove the person was actually behind the wheel. NO statements were made to the police. The vehicle was also not registered under this persons name.

Can the DMV suspend your license without ever being arrested or charged of DUI?
Never was sent a notification by mail stating the suspension or was told by the officer. It involved an accident where the person was sent to the hospital and a blood test was given.

Does state law trump hospital policies regarding legal blood draw in a DUI manslaughter suspect?
Last year I obtained a blood sample on a patient who was the driver in a car crash that resulted in a fatality on scene. (I'm an RN). The patient verbally opposed the blood draw, but the highway patrol showed me a search warrant signed by a judge. Our hospital policies only speak to blood draws with signed consent, however I believe that would only pertain in cases not involving vehicular homicide. Would the language of our hospital policies show that the I was in violation of hospital procedures and disqualify the evidence from the case? I have been subpoenaed and I'm nervous.
