Is DUI with an Accident a Felony DUI in Vista Courts?

It is only a felony DUI with an accident in Vista Courts and throughout California if the accident was caused by the DUI driver and another person is injured or killed.  If it is an accident with no one else injured other than the DUI driver, then it is still a misdemeanor.  An accident, however can cause increased penalties even as a misdemeanor that are greater than a DUI without an accident.
