West has been charged with DUI Causing Serious Bodily Injury, Leaving the Scene of an Accident Involving Serious Bodily Injury or Death and driving with No Valid Drivers License while Causing Serious Bodily Injury.

After a lengthy investigation, dectectives determined that Joshua Dean West was behind the wheel of the Honda Accord that slammed into Andrew Hall apporoximately five months ago. Their investigation was made more difficult by the fact that neither West nor his passenger that day, Douglas Ziegler, would confirm for investigators who was driving that morning.
