Drunk Driver Strikes Bicyclist in Hit-and-Run Injury Accident in Zebulon, North Carolina

Comments (0)
In what appears to be a bicycle accident injury case involving a drunken driver when a vehicle struck a Zebulon, North Carolina man from behind while he was riding his bike. According to police the 52 year old driver struck the bicyclist along West Gannon Avenue within city districts. The driver kept right on going with total disregard to the bicyclist.

The bicycle rider was treated for minor injuries at WakeMed in Raleigh, North Carolina (N.C.). The Spring Hope, North Carolina native that was drunk behind the wheel was later tested to have a blood alcohol content level of 0.22  and open alcohol containers were found in his vehicle.

When the hit and run accident involves injury to another person, penalties are much more severe. The driver may face fines, DMV points, prison time and a revocation of his or her driver's license and/or insurance policy. Most states' laws require a minimum of liability insurance to be able to register an automobile.
