The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office disclosed that they arrested a man connected with a DUI crash in Reno, Nevada, that killed Emily Giudici, 27, on Tuesday, September 15th. Alexandrew Vail, 26, would need representation from a drunk driving attorney.
The suspect faces a charge of driving under the influence and driving without a driver’s license. The incident happened close to Mt. Rose Highway just after 2 a.m. The sheriff’s office did not release the accident details, but they disclosed that Giudici died at the scene.
The accident report did not state if Vail suffered any injury. The occurrence caused investigators to shut down the highway between Douglas Fir Drive and Sunridge Drive while investigating and clearing the scene. There is no additional information.
Nevada DUI laws prohibit all motorists from operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or more within two hours of consuming drugs or alcohol. The BAC is lower than that number for commercial bus drivers.
For them, the limit is .04% or more, and underage drivers can be cited for operating a vehicle with a BAC of .02% or more. Before convicting a person of the offense, the judge or jury would consider whether the driver was in physical control.
They will consider if the vehicle was in transit, if the person drove at night and the position the person occupied in the car. A conviction means jail time, possible community service, or payment of a fine.
