MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — A man has been charged with assault after the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency says he seriously injured two people in a head-on crash in November.
Matias Hipolito, 29, is charged with first-degree assault after he struck another vehicle head-on on Nov. 12 while driving under the influence on Bellingrath Road at Half Mile Road, ALEA said in a press release.
Hipolito was initially arrested at the scene of the crash for driving under the influence but was arrested again on Nov. 29 for first-degree assault due to severe injuries that a passenger received from the crash.
Both the driver and the passenger were treated at University Hospital for serious injuries.
ALEA troopers are continuing to investigate.
