Intoxicated driver arrested in Iowa City, charged with false imprisonment

Around 2 a.m. Friday morning, a Cedar Rapids woman was arrested after she was accused of drunk driving, and holding two passengers against their will. The 26-year-old was driving her minivan in Iowa City when she offered two men a ride.

The men obliged, and entered the vehicle, agreeing to pay a certain amount to the woman for supplying the transportation. But, an argument surrounding the method of payment broke out when the men were at their destination. The driver decided to abruptly leave the area, with the passengers still inside her car.

She was entering Interstate 80 in Iowa City when the men feared for their lives, and jumped from the moving vehicle. The driver continued traveling west until she was pulled over by police. She was subsequently arrested, and charged with intoxicated driving, and false imprisonment. Her bond was set at $6,000.

Study says sleepy driving the same as drunk driving

A study conducted by French researchers has found a connection between sleepy drivers and an elevated risk for car accidents.

Data was gathered from 700 different drivers who had to stay in a hospital due to a car accident for at least one day. The results indicated that drivers who felt sleepy, and drivers who were intoxicated were twice as likely to cause a car accident than those drivers who felt awake, and were sober.

Police also determined that roughly half of those that were studied were responsible for the car accidents that left them with injuries. The findings from this study are featured in “Archives of Internal Medicine.”

Drunk driving and reckless driving can cause severe injuries, and oftentimes fatalities. If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, please contact the drunk driving accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600 today.
