After speaking with an auto accident lawyer, a Plymouth man was arrested by the Hingham Police Department on Massachusetts Drunk Driving Charges after he allegedly crashed his car head-on into an SUV this past weekend.
William E. Vonberg, 41, was charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle.
According the Hingham Police Department, Vonberg was allegedly traveling on Route 228 on Sunday night when he struck another car head-on. The other vehicle, driven by a 59 year old woman from Hingham with a 60 year old Brockton woman in the passenger seat, reportedly needed to be removed from their car with the jaws of life.
Vonberg was also reportedly removed from his car with the jaws of life and transported to Boston Medical Center with serious injuries.
Hingham Police allege that Vonger’s car crossed the center median and struck the other car head on. A search of his car allegedly revealed open alcohol beverage containers in the front seat.
In Massachusetts DUI / OUI cases where the suspected drunk driver was also injured and clearly not able to submit to any Field Sobriety Tests and/or an Alcohol Breath Test, prosecutors will often attempt to subpoena the person’s medical records from his treatment of his/her injuries following the accident. Prosecutors know that, once admitted to the hospital, doctors will usually test the patient’s blood for the presence of drugs or alcohol and if any were present, will try to admit those records as evidence against him should the case proceed to trial.
