Question: what are the laws for underage dui and causing a accident involving death and the laws of leaving scene of fatal dui accident
Answer: Underage DUI, is simply a person under 21 years of age, driving or being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle, while having any level of alcohol in the driver's system. Any level can mean even a drink of alcohol. An underage DUI, if convicted, can cause the driver to lose their license until they are 21 years of age, require they pay fines, and attend alcohol counseling and classes. Causing an accident that involves death, assuming the driver that caused the accident was not impaired by alcohol or drugs and stayed at the scene of the accident after it occurred, can cause the driver to have their license revoked. If a driver leaves the scene of a fatal accident and is also DUI, they may be charged with manslaughter, which is a class 2 felony which may be punished by up to 21 years in prison. In addition, leaving the scene of a fatal accident, is a separate charge which is also a class 2 felony.
