What Is Vehicular Assault or Vehicular Homicide?
Vehicular assault and Vehicular homicide are defined as, “a crime that involves serious bodily injury or death of a person other than the driver as a result of either reckless driving or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.”
As you may have guessed, vehicular homicide requires a party to actually die as a result of the accident. These are felony cases and are very serious. Both vehicular assault and vehicular homicide carry significant penalties both in court and with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
