When a driver kills another person with his vehicle, he may be charged with vehicular manslaughter. In this video, you’ll learn more about this crime and the factors that define it.
Vehicular homicide does not require that the prosecution demonstrate intent to kill the victim, and it usually results from negligence, recklessness, drunk driving, or driving while committing a felony. All of these factors can lead to the unintended death of another.
