A DWI can become a felony after having three qualified driving incidents in the previous ten years, or having a prior felony conviction in a lifetime, or if there’s an accident that causes injury to another party. It can’t be just any injury. It can’t be bodily harm. It has to be either substantial or great bodily harm or causing death of another person.
