As anyone knows who has received a speeding ticket - speeding is not ordinarily considered reckless driving for which there is a separate misdemeanor offense and by analogy recklessness for manslaughter.
If they can't prove intoxication their chances of prosecution plummet and even if successful the sentence will be much lighter.
Has anyone seen a report of what kind of vehicle was involved?
Thanks for the post
I'm sure it was a Yugo!
