In cases of DUI/DWI incidents, authorities will, of course, investigate if there is an accident where they can apprehend the person said to be at fault at the scene, or where they can secure enough information to chase down a hit-and-run driver. However, there doesn't need to be an accident for authorities to investigate a potential DUI/DWI incident.
