What happens in Michigan if a drunk driver causes a crash that injured or kills a person?
In Michigan the laws are tough on motorists who drink and drive and cause a crash resulting in injury or wrongful death. If a drunk driver causes serious injury, the driver may face a maximum $5,000 fine and five years in jail. In crashes resulting in a death, the drunk driver may face a maximum $10,000 fine and 15 years in jail. The drunk driver also faces a maximum five-year license revocation, three-year vehicle immobilization-unless forfeited-and vehicle registration denial.
