Fiery freeway collision kills 2 near Louisville

No one leaves his or her home in Covington in the morning anticipating that he or she will be involved in a car accident. Most (if asked) may likely say that they are confident enough in their own driving skills that accident avoidance has become almost second nature to them. While such safe driving practices no doubt benefit such people while on the road, they cannot account for the reckless actions of others. When a simple act of inattentiveness is combined with such recklessness, it is often amazing how easily catastrophic accidents can be the result. 

When does a misdemeanor DUI become a felony?

Along with all other states, Kentucky lawmakers have enacted laws against driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol a crime. DUIs are typically misdemeanors, which fall between infractions and felonies. An infraction does not carry jail time, while a misdemeanor usually means a fine and a sentence of jail time in a regional facility. A felony is much more serious and carries penalties that are more severe, typically a stiff fine, along with a prison sentence that follows you around for the rest of your life.
