Dianne Miles Injured in Alleged Intoxicated Driver Accident in Harris County, TX; Marcus Nelson Charged
Harris County, TX -- January 4, 2023, Dianne Miles was injured due to an accident which authorities say involved intoxicated driving.
Preliminary details are scarce at this time. Authorities said only that Dianne Miles sustained serious bodily injuries due to an accident in which Marcus Nelson was allegedly driving while intoxicated. Documents show that Nelson is currently facing a pending charge for intoxication assault. Right now, there is no additional information available about the incident.
But the claims of intoxication alone are enough to suggest the events following this incident are going to be anything but simple. A big reason for that is that a lot of crashes with details like these end up involving negligent bars or other businesses who also need to be held accountable for their role in the accident. If the allegations here prove to be true, those challenges could come up here, as well.
It would seem local officials have taken steps to at least ensure a driver has a court date. Have they been equally thorough in making sure the victim and their loved ones have all the information they need to make informed decisions about what their next steps should be?
