Grass Valley DUI Crash

I’m Ed Smith, a Grass Valley personal injury lawyer. A Grass Valley man was detained on the night of Sunday, January 29, 2017. This man was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after he crashed his vehicle into a tree along a roadway in Nevada County. Unfortunately, this crash caused traumatic injuries to the two passengers riding with him in his vehicle.
