Collision leads to drug charges for 2 in Missouri

On Behalf of | Apr 26, 2022 | Criminal Defense |

Being involved in a collision can be stressful under any circumstance, and even a minor collision could disrupt one’s plans for the day and prompt various financial challenges. However, should the fallout of a crash lead to suspicion of unlawful behavior, the process could become significantly more complex. A recent collision in Missouri that allegedly unearthed the presence of a substantial amount of marijuana has left two individuals facing drug charges.

The crash

According to reports, the incident began when authorities responded to the scene of a collision on a recent Wednesday. Authorities say that the crash occurred when the driver of a pickup truck crashed into the rear of a tractor-trailer. While investigating the scene, authorities claim they found numerous packages of marijuana among the crash debris.

Authorities assert that they uncovered the presence of 500 pounds of marijuana at the scene. They claim that the pickup truck was transporting these packages at the time of the crash. Both occupants within the truck were arrested and are both facing numerous drug-related charges in relation to the incident, while the driver of the truck also stands accused of reckless driving.

Facing drug charges

It is no secret that a conviction for drug charges carries severe penalties that could have a devastating impact on one’s future. Those who stand accused of similar offenses and wish to know more about their available options and legal rights might consider retaining the services of an attorney as soon as possible for advice on the next steps to take. An attorney can evaluate the incident, along with the charges and evidence against a client, and assist in preparing to seek the best outcome achievable regarding his or her future during subsequent legal proceedings.
