Is it a felony to T-bone another car while drunk?

Driving while under the influence can earn a driver harsh penalties even if they only speed or commit minor traffic violations. However, the penalties can raise much higher if the driver ends up getting into an accident. The driver may then face both DUI penalties and other charges like reckless endangerment or bodily harm. Depending on the severity of the accident, they may even face criminal violence charges.
