A DUI in Georgia is serious business, but it can be eve more serious if injury to another party is involved. A Georgia man, James Tucker was indicted for DUI and serious injury by vehicle when he crashed his car into another woman's vehicle earlier this year.

Prosecutors are alleging that on January 20, 2012, 29-year-old Tucker was driving under the influence of alcohol when he ran a red light and hit a woman's car. She is stating that she has lost the vision in her right eye as a result from the crash. In addition of other fines and penalties, he could be facing 19 years in jail for this offense.
