Noblesville woman charged in drunk-driving crash that killed 2

A 22-year-old Noblesville woman is facing serious criminal charges this month after her involvement in a fatal car accident near the Geist Reservoir in Hamilton County. Some of our Dearborn County readers may have already heard about the crash that happened around 10:25 p.m. when the 22-year-old's vehicle veered into oncoming traffic, colliding with another vehicle in the process.

The reason the Noblesville woman is facing criminal charges is because of the fact that she was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Blood samples taken shortly after the crash confirmed a .10 blood-alcohol level and reports indicate that she told police she had been drinking prior to the accident.

Though she has been charged with several felony charges and will likely face litigation in the criminal courts, her legal woes may not end there. That's because her decision to drink and drive caused the deaths of two Indiana residents and left another passenger critically injured. This could lead to civil litigation down the road, depending on if the injured victim and the deceased victims' families decide to take legal action.

As you may already know, drunk driving is considered a reckless behavior that can be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances of the case, compensation may be awarded to victims that can be used to cover medical bills, property damage and even burial costs. And although it's unknown if the victims and their families in this case intend on taking legal action at this time or in the future, it's worth pointing out that they could and may be entitled to restitution as well.
